Celebrating Excellence in Child Health Advocacy

Each year, we honor remarkable pediatricians who serve children, families and communities all across Tennessee. Pediatricians and others from across the State are honored for the contributions they made to the children they treat, the families they serve, and the communities in which they live.

The Pediatrician of the Year Award goes to a member of the Chapter who in the past year has made extraordinary and unique contributions on behalf of Tennessee's children, to his or her community, or to the Chapter.

The Senior Pediatrician of the Year Awards are given to those who have practiced pediatrics for at least 35 years, whether retired or still practicing, and have made a significant impact over time to the welfare of children in his or her community.

Distinguished Service Awards and Friend of Children Awards are typically given to non-pediatricians from the field of government, public health, media, advocacy, etc, who have made outstanding contributions to the health and safety of children over the past year.
