Washington, DC, August 21, 2018 - The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) is pleased to announce Wynne Morgan, MD, as the recipient of AACAP’s first ever Marilyn B. Benoit, MD, Child Maltreatment Mentorship Award.
AACAP’s Marilyn B. Benoit, MD, Child Maltreatment Mentorship Award was made possible by a generous donation by Ms. Lisa Yang who established this award in honor of AACAP member Marilyn B. Benoit, MD, and to bring attention to issues surrounding child maltreatment. The award seeks to provide an experiential opportunity to those interested in the fields of child welfare, foster care, and/or child maltreatment prevention/intervention.
The goals of the award are to increase awareness and interest in the fields of child welfare, foster care, and/or child maltreatment prevention/intervention; recognize child and adolescent psychiatrists who specialize in these fields; and create a community of knowledgeable and effective teachers who will become leaders in these fields and serve as a resource for all AACAP members.
