Adele D. Hofmann Visiting Professor in Adolescent Medicine and Health 

The Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine offers this award to provide an educational experience in adolescent medicine to a group of healthcare providers who may not otherwise have the opportunity to benefit from the professor's expertise. The designated professor will spend 2-4 days at a selected institution, offering training, guidance or expertise to enhance the knowledge and skills of clinical or academic staff within the host institution.

The Visiting Professorship in Adolescent Medicine and Health was named after Adele D. Hofmann in 2003 to honor her contributions to the field of adolescent medicine and health. During her 45-year career, she made profound contributions in such areas as: the legal rights of minors, teenage sexuality, adolescent behavior and the treatment of high-risk youth.
