Wellness Programs
AACAP's 64th Annual Meeting Logo

To encourage the personal health and wellness of our AACAP members, the Program Committee is continuing to infuse a wellness theme into the Annual Meeting again this year. Special activities will include:

  • A morning fun run, “serious” run, walk, and bike around beautiful Washington, DC
  • Yoga classes each morning and evening
  • Meditation classes each morning and evening
  • Scientific CME sessions on wellness for you and your patients
  • Healthy food selections at our special events

We hope attendees take advantage of these opportunities to improve your wellbeing. These events are open to all attendees and their spouse/significant other.
