Each year, SAHM awards a visiting professorship to an adolescent health professional who has demonstrated excellence in their work and a commitment to advancing the field of adolescent health. The Adele D. Hofmann Visiting Professorship in Adolescent Medicine and Health was established to provide an educational experience in Adolescent Medicine for a group of health care providers who might not otherwise have the opportunity to benefit from the professor’s expertise.

2020 Hofmann Visiting Professor in Adolescent Medicine and Health 

This prestigious award was established in 1986 with the first award being given in 1987. In 2003, the Visiting Professorship in Adolescent Medicine was renamed to honor Dr. Adele D. Hofmann for her lifelong commitment to the field of Adolescent Medicine and Health. The professorship is supported by a gift to the Society from Dr. Hofmann’s children, Annie Gardiner and Peter Hofmann. The Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine sponsors this annual event to provide an educational experience in adolescent medicine for a group of health care providers who may not otherwise have the opportunity to benefit from the professor’s expertise. Applications will be considered on the basis of the institution’s ability to provide a large local audience, preferably comprised primarily of professionals concerned with adolescent health. Special preference will be given to institutions and organizations that are committed to developing or maintaining educational, clinical or training relationships with community-based organizations. It is desirable for the applicant location to be affiliated with a residency training program so physicians-in-training can have exposure to the visiting professor. All candidates for this award are to be members of the Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine.
