The Pediatrics Interest Group (PIG) promotes interest and opportunities to gain knowledge of the specialty of Pediatrics. Its mission is to provide service to the pediatric community of South Florida through education and support, and to foster the development of FIU HW COM students into becoming excellent providers of care to children and their families. PIG has participated in several community service projects such as Spring into Health, Cystic Fibrosis 5K Walk and Walk a Mile with a Child. The Pediatric Interest Group is organized through the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). All active members are encouraged to become members of the AAP and attend the national conference held annually in October.
