Child and Adolescent Health Champions

Award ceremony: Saturday 9th April 2022

Do you know someone who has made an amazing, perhaps under-recognized, contribution to Child and Adolescent Health locally or globally?

The Academy of Child and Adolescent Health is establishing the ACAH Champion Awards.
The difference between these awards and other honours, is that these awards will be peer-nominated and peer-voted.
We are looking to recognise passionate, innovative people, from diverse backgrounds, who are gamechangers in Child and Adolescent Health!


(NB: categories could have 0, 1 or more winners depending on number and quality of nominations)

  1. Open: child and adolescent health professional or researcher
  2. Emerging leader: student, trainee or early career researcher (<10 yrs since PhD)
