Wellness Programs

In an effort to encourage the personal good health and wellness of our own AACAP members, the Program Committee is infusing a wellness theme into the Annual Meeting this year. Special activities include:

  • A morning run, walk, and bike
  • Yoga classes each morning and evening
  • Meditation classes each morning and evening
  • CME sessions about the wellness of your patients
  • Healthier food selections at our special events

Attendees are encouraged to take advantage of the above opportunities to improve their well being. These events are open to all attendees, their spouse/significant other, and families. See below for scheduling details.
