Public Education Committee

The Public Education Committee is responsible for developing, reviewing and publishing educational materials for the public (patients, families, caregivers).  Content development for NASPGHAN’s public education website,, is our top priority.  Committee members participate in writing, editing and developing topic articles and audiovisual content.  Members collaborate with the Technology Committee regarding content governance, the designated Webmaster/Internet service provider regarding social media content, and other NASPGHAN committees (e.g. Nutrition, Hepatology, Motility) for specialized content.
