NCPeds' Advocacy: A Team Effort

NCPeds 2019 General Fund Campaign Kickoff

Making NCPeds successful is a team effort,and we want you on our team.

Join us as we kick off our 2019 General Fund Campaign!

NCPeds is grateful for the ongoing support of each one of our members! It's through this support that we are able to continue our mission of empowering pediatricians and our partners to foster the physical, social, and emotional well-being of infants, children, adolescents and young adults.

We cannot do this important work without you.

"I attended my first NCPeds meeting in the mid-70’s expecting a trade organization focused on its members. However 90% of the meeting was focused on advocacy for children and families. That ethic continues today, which makes supporting NCPeds a 'no brainer' for me," said Tom Vitaglione, MPH.

Our General Fund Campaign will make it possible to continue the important advocacy, education and programmatic efforts that NCPeds works on year-round. In 2018, it assisted in the advocacy efforts surrounding vaccine administrative action payouts, and it assisted with advocacy surrounding Medicaid increases in primary care in 2019.

Each of these efforts have strengthened the pediatric health care community and are powerful examples of what we can accomplish together.

"I believe the NCPeds Society is the guiding force, and essential center of all pediatric care in North Carolina. The work the Pediatric Society does benefits all children, whether they are cared for in academic or private practices, and that, in turn, positively affects the future of North Carolina,” said Tim P. Bukowski, MD, FAAP.

We can't do this without the support of all of our members. In 2018, 100 percent of the NCPeds board contributed to the General Fund Campaign, and we typically have 100 percent of our past presidents' support as well.

Our 2019 General Fund Campaign goal is $68,000, and we hope to reach that goal with the support of individuals and practices throughout North Carolina.

"I support NCPeds because of the inclusive community it cultivates and the advocacy it provides for patients and families. NCPeds has been an effective voice for kids who can’t speak for themselves on important health and policy issues. I am proud to be a part of this organization,” said Heather McLean, MD, FAAP.

Join us in helping North Carolina's children and adolescents today.

Being a pediatrician is all about building relationships with patients and their families for David Tayloe, III, MD, FAAP.

"My favorite part is meeting the patients and their families and getting to know and work with them.The variety is great. I can see a 3-day-old and then the next appointment is a 19- to 20-year-old," he said. "I take particular interest in seeing our Spanish-speaking families and enjoy meeting with them and helping their children and families."

David has been a practicing physician for nine years and currently works as a Pediatrician and Partner at Coastal Children's Clinic in New Bern.

He is active on the NCPeds Board of Directors and several of the organization's committees. He currently serves as the NCPeds Treasurer, Chair of the Financial and Development Committee and Co-Chair of the Early Career Physician Committee.

"I love the educational aspect of NCPeds, but, more than that, I am always inspired by the great work that other pediatricians and child advocates are doing around the state," he said. "I get great ideas from them, am always re-energized and have made a lot of good friends."

He lives in New Bern with his family where you'll find them enjoying outdoors activities such as boating, swimming, fishing, hiking or camping.
