Division News

A compilation of professional and academic accomplishments and recognition in the popular press

In Brief


  • The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) announced William Benitz, MD, as the 2020 recipient of the of the  Avroy Fanaroff Neonatal Education Award. Dr. Benitz says he is profoundly honored and humbled to be included in the company of prior recipients, which include three from our Division — Ron Ariagno, MD, David Stevenson, MD, and Jeffrey Gould, MD, MPH. Because this year's AAP National Conference & Exhibition has moved online, the date and place of Dr. Benitz's award presentation has yet to be determined and will likely be sometime in 2021. 
  • Jochen Profit, MD, MPH, has presented notable lectures and addresses via webinar:
    • He was co-lecturer of Oxford University Department of Paediatrics Grand Rounds on July 1. The presentation was entitled "Birth of the International Neonatal SARS-CoV-2 Collaboration." 
    • He spoke to the CPQCC community about addressing racism and advancing health equity in the NICU space. Watch the video below. 
  • Jadene Wong, MD, is co-author of a new CPQCC Provider Toolkit entitled Primary Care for Preterm Infants & Children. The toolkit combines recommendations from several national organizations including American Academy of Pediatrics, the Centers for Disease Control, and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. It's designed to be an easily accessible reference for primary care physicians in a clinic setting.
