NCDP Director Irwin Redlener, MD, was honored with the prestigious Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism on November 7, at the Schweitzer Leadership Conference in Boston. The award is given annually to an individual who has helped bring health care to all people, regardless of their economic and social status, and “whose commitment to service influences and inspires others.” The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship called Dr. Redlener a “compassionate and passionate leader in the field of pediatric and public health.” It noted both his expertise in disaster preparedness, and his work as co-founder of Children’s Health Fund.
