During the 2019 Title V Federal-State Maternal & Child
Health Partnership meeting, our very own Dr. Charles Irwin was awarded the Title V Lifetime Achievement Award
from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB). This award recognizes outstanding
contributions made to the field of maternal and child health over a sustained
period. Dr. Irwin earned this award as a
result of his decades of contributions to improving the quality of preventive
care for adolescents and young adults. He has served as the Director of the Adolescent & Young Adult
Health National Resource Center since its inception in 2014 and is a distinguished
professor of pediatrics at the University of California School of Medicine and
the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. Check
out Dr. Irwin’s bio
to learn more about the breadth of his contributions to this field and join us
in congratulating him on this well-deserved recognition!
Stay tuned for our next blog post: AMCHP’s Child
& Adolescent Health Team is headed to the American Public Health
Association’s (APHA) 2019 Annual Conference in Philadelphia, PA and we plan to share
key adolescent and young adult behavioral health takeaways with you. Follow us at @AMCHP_GrowingUp and let us know
if you’ll be attending the APHA Annual Conference as well.
Happy Halloween, Adolescent & Young Adult Health
