Physicians from Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Named to American Pediatric Society
Three physicians from Children’s Hospital Los Angeles were recently accepted into the American Pediatric Society (APS)--a national collaboration of pediatricians dedicated to advancing academic pediatrics. This distinction recognizes the physicians’ roles as leaders, teachers and researchers whose contributions to pediatrics have received national and international recognition.
“The APS is one of the most respected pediatric associations,” says Brent Polk, MD, director of The Saban Research Institute. “This membership not only recognizes the individual accomplishments of our physicians, but also their commitment to advocacy, scholarship, education, and leadership development within the greater field of academic pediatrics.”
The following inductees will be honored at the APS Member’s Dinner in Vancouver, Canada on May 4th:
