The Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine Visiting Professorship in Adolescent Health Research was established in 1995 with the first award being given for 1995. The intent of this award was to provide an educational experience in Adolescent Research for a group of health care providers and researchers who might not otherwise have the opportunity to benefit from the professor’s expertise.

In 2005, the Board of Directors named this professorship in perpetuity to honor Dr. Iris F. Litt because of her substantial contributions to the field of adolescent medicine and adolescent health, as well as her tenure as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Adolescent Health.
