The Perinatal Section of the Society for Pediatric Pathology has
established an annual $500 award to be presented at the fall interim
meeting of the Society, which coincides with the Perinatal Section
meeting. The award was established with funds generously donated by the
Study Group for the Complications of Perinatal Care, and is awarded for
the best platform or poster presentation on a perinatal topic that
advances the field of understanding in one of the following areas:
Prognostication by placental examination
Diagnosis and prevention of the complications of perinatal care
The award is open to any presenter including medical students,
pathologists-in-training, junior or senior pathologists, and clinical or
basic science investigators. No formal application or nominations are
necessary. The award will be chosen by the Awards Committee based on
the abstracts submitted and their presentations.
