Resources and Webinars:
Pediatric practices are facing unique challenges in today’s world due to COVID-19. From fear to confusion, patients who need care are increasingly avoiding routine visits and vaccination appointments. We provide campaigns and toolkits that you and your practices may utilize to reach families and communicate best health practices while addressing fear and continuing to share expertise.
Using humor and real-world conversations, AAP has launched the #CallYourPediatrician campaign, which aims to reach parents with timely reminders that going to the pediatrician, even during COVID-19, is important and safe. Click on the campaigns to find everything you need to share on your own platforms and networks including sample texts, videos and photos sized for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest.
All posts should include the hashtag #CallYourPediatrician. Here is an example of the available material:
This toolkit is meant to provide pediatricians with easy to use resources to reach out to families. It includes social media graphics for Twitter, Facebook, Instagram with pertinent information on well child visits, vaccines, and more in English, Spanish and Vietnamese. Feel free to edit and use these material for your practices.
