The Pediatric Pharmacy Association gives three Research Awards based on abstract submissions each year at its Annual Meeting. Primary authors may be considered for all awards for which they are eligible but may win only one award.
Outstanding Original Paper
Outstanding Original Paper Investigators will be evaluated on the basis of their written abstract and the quality of their poster presentation at the Meeting. The winner will receive complimentary registration to next year's Annual Meeting and a framed certificate.
The Christensen Memorial Young Investigator Award
The Christensen Memorial Young Investigator Award is available to investigators who have been in practice five (5) years or less . This award will be granted to the investigator based on their written abstract and the quality of their poster presentation at the PPA Annual Meeting each year.
The Award is named in memory of Joyce and Lloyd Christensen, the parents of Michael Christensen, PharmD, the 2009-10 Chair of the Board. Friends and colleagues of Dr. Christensen generously funded the award.
