Title: “A Home for the ‘Therapeutic Orphan:’ The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and Federal Drug Policy for Children, 1933-1979”
Abstract: In this paper, I address several questions: How is it that the AAP became the group considered to represent children’s “best interests” over time as it concerned pharmaceuticals? What specific roles did the organization played in societal debates concerning children’s pharmaceutical use, testing, measures of efficacy, marketing, consent, and regulation?
