AUDIO: How the American Academy of Pediatrics Abandoned Kids for Politics

Quentin Van Meter, MD, FCP, president and longtime member of the American College of Pediatricians, graduated from the College of William and Mary in 1969 and received his M.D. in 1973 from the Medical College of Virginia. While in medical school, he entered the Navy through the Health Professions Scholarship and went on to a pediatric internship and residency at the Naval Hospital in Oakland. He subsequently completed a fellowship in Pediatric Endocrinology in 1980 at Johns Hopkins. He completed 20 years of service in the Navy Medical Corps, retiring as a Captain in 1991. His final tour of duty was back at the Naval Hospital in Oakland where he was Pediatric Department Chairman and director of the Pediatric residency program. After the Navy, he moved to the Atlanta area to join a multi-specialty private practice, providing general pediatric and pediatric endocrine services, as he had in the Navy. He has maintained academic affiliations throughout his career, at LSU, UC San Diego, UC San Francisco, Emory, and Morehouse Schools of Medicine. Since 2003, he has been practicing full-time pediatric endocrinology in private practice and is actively involved in clinical research with growth hormone, novel insulins, and GnRH agonists.

This is an audio podcast of The Dr J Show. Full video episode is available here.

He has a long history of advocacy for children through the American Academy of Pediatrics where he served as Chairman of the Uniformed Services West Chapter. Once he moved to Georgia, he became active in that AAP Chapter as Legislative Chairman and Newsletter Editor. He is continually frustrated by the political bent of the National AAP and wants to continue his advocacy role with the College as an organization that actually works for children and their families by strengthening the role of the family without using a lens that focuses only on what is politically correct or expedient. He has maintained his Georgia Chapter membership, but no longer belongs to the national organization. Dr. Van Meter has spoken around the world on the subject of transgender children. His experience began at Johns Hopkins in the 1970’s with Dr. John Money, and he has seen the travesty of continued experimentation on children evolve since then.
