Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) proudly announces that ten current residents, fellows, faculty, and alums received awards at the 2023 American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) National Conference recently held in Washington, D.C.

U.S. Army Cpt. (Dr.) Emily Parsons won the Outstanding Young Pediatrician for the East Section for Uniformed Services, and Dr. Joseph Lopreiato won a National Award for Pediatric Simulation Excellence. Six of the AAP’s top research awards went to WRNMMC pediatric trainees.

“This speaks to the robust, high-quality research that the Department of Pediatrics supports here at Walter Reed,” shared U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. (Dr.) Sarah M. Reynolds, program director for the National Capital Consortium Pediatric Endocrinology Fellowship and a professor with the Uniformed Services University F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine.
