SFMS Resident Member Receives Prestigious AAP Advocacy Award

Adam Schickedanz, SFMS board member and a resident at the UCSF Department of Pediatrics program, is the recipient of the 2012 American Academy of Pediatrics' Anne E. Dyson Child Advocacy Award. Adam was recognized for his work at founding and coordinating the Financial Fitness Clinic at San Francisco General Hospital. The award, supported by the Dyson Foundation, celebrates the outstanding efforts of three pediatricians-in-training nationally each year as they work in their communities to improve the health of children.

The Financial Fitness Clinic was selected earlier this year for a $10,000 grant by the SFMS Community Service Foundation and the San-Cop Foundation. Support from SFMS has been instrumental in helping more patients with financial hardship that impacts their health.
