Final AAP Resolution on Violence
As noted in last month's edition of Check-Up, our Chapter President introduced a resolution on the culture of violence in the media and its effects on children.

In addition the resolution recommended that the Academy gather and develop resource materials on reducing violence. To read the final and complete resolution open this link
