Extract

To the Editor We read with great interest the recently published American Pediatric Society Viewpoint by Walker and Stapleton,1 which points out the increasingly important need to diversify the academic pediatric workforce. As leaders of the Academic Pediatric Association (APA), we strongly agree with this viewpoint. A central goal of the APA is to increase the diversity of future academic pediatricians. However, in response to the comment that “pediatric organizations have not developed national strategies” to address this issue, we want to share with the authors and readers the highly successful efforts of the APA New Century Scholars (NCS) program.
