Dr. Paul Offit given AAP President’s Award

October 23rd, 2009 · 3 Comments · Kudos

Nobody has done more to educate the public, and the news and entertainment media, about vaccines and autism than Dr. Paul Offit. He’s granted scores of interviews, spoken at dozens of conferences, and still finds time to see patients, all while enduring the slings and arrows of an unhinged minority of anti-vaccine zealots. His book, Autism’s False Prophets, almost single-handedly changed the media narrative from “vaccines might cause autism” to “vaccine rejectionism is dangerous.”

So it’s fitting that the American Academy of Pediatrics,  an organization that is itself at ground zero in the autism wars, should recognize Offit’s service.

WASHINGTON, DC – The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) will present Paul Offit, MD, FAAP, with the President’s Certificate for Outstanding Service at the National Conference and Exhibition of the AAP. The award recognizes an individual’s outstanding service and long-term, personal dedication to the mission of the AAP and to the health, safety and well-being of children. Dr. Offit is a pediatrician, chief of infectious diseases and the director of the vaccine education center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The AAP is honoring Dr. Offit in recognition of his ongoing commitment to promote immunization

Congratulations to Offit, and the Academy.

    “Nobody has done more to educate the public, and the news and entertainment media, about vaccines and autism than Dr. Paul Offit. ”

    No one else has been given the platform of Dr. Offit so its not surprising. I’d put Autism Diva up there as someone that educated Offit on autism and woke him up to the vaccine autism controversy.

    Good point, K. But we are all standing on the shoulders of giants, aren’t we?

    Offit is not a giant to me. The kids that struggle and survive are the giants to me. Not someone given every opportunity on a silver platter.
