Howland Award

The John Howland Award is the highest honor bestowed by the American Pediatric Society (APS). Named in honor of Dr. John Howland [1873-1926], the award, with its accompanying medal, is presented annually by the American Pediatric Society for "distinguished service to pediatrics as a whole." Since 1952, when Edwards A. Park, M.D., received the inaugural Howland Award, this honor has been bestowed upon esteemed leaders in academic pediatrics whose significant contributions have advanced the lives of children and the profession of pediatrics through clinical care, scientific discovery, mentorship and service.
Nomination Criteria:
Article II of the APS Constitution forms the actual basis for the selection of the Howland Recipient, which states: The objectives of this Society shall be to bring together men and women for the advancement of the study of children and their diseases, for the prevention of illness and the promotion of health in childhood, for the promotion of pediatric education and research, and to honor those who, by their contributions to pediatrics, have aided in its advancement.
