NSU Pediatrician’s Chapter Win National Award


Deborah A. Mulligan, M.D


Deborah A. Mulligan, M.D., director of NSU’s Institute for Child Health Policy, and her colleagues who are members of the Florida Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), recently won an outstanding award. The Florida Chapter received the AAP Outstanding Chapter Award for the Very Large Category (1,001+ Fellows). It was the first time the chapter has won this award since 1993. Mulligan, who is a member of the Florida Chapter, serves as the AAP’s Council on Communications and Media Chairperson. The award was presented to chapter members and leaders during the AAP’s Annual Leadership Forum in Schaumburg, Illinois. The event was focused on improving the health of children, as well as enhancing and protecting the pediatrics profession.

“This distinction was received due to the hard work and commitment of each one of you. In recognizing the Florida Chapter the AAP specifically identified our fiscal stability, improved governance, advocacy, young physician engagement and leadership, the activies and programs of our Section on Medical Students, Residents, and Fellows in Training, and increased membership,” said Mobeen Rathore, M.D., president of the Florida Chapter of the AAP.

Rathore said: “The award is also a result of hard work in the areas of obesity prevention, immunization promotion, and disaster preparedness. This recognition would not have been possible without the commitment and support of each and every one of you, the hard work of my predecessors in the position of President, the leadership of the Board of Directors and our outstanding Executive Director.”
