This award honors a pediatric psychologist who professionally promotes understanding and respect for diversity in research, policy or practice within the field of pediatric psychology. Diversity-related activities may focus on issues such as race/ethnicity, gender, culture, disability status, sexual orientation, language differences, socioeconomic status and/or religion. This work could also focus on health disparities in children's health care, which could include attention to differences in access to services and mortality rates. Contributions that have addressed the conceptual and/or methodological challenges of working in diversity areas of research, policy, and practice would also be relevant.
The recipient may be invited to present a summary of his or her activities in research, policy and practice at SPP's annual conference.
Nominees must be current members of Div. 54. Self-nominations will be considered.
