Larry J. Seidman Award for Outstanding Mentorship

Nomination deadline: 15th April 2018

The IEPA Board seeks nominations from IEPA members for this new award established in memory of Dr. Larry Seidman, an internationally leading clinical scientist in the field of mental health research and the early intervention paradigm. He was not only dedicated to discovery and the implementation of new knowledge, but also had a rare gift for mentorship of colleagues at all stages of seniority and transcending professional boundaries. Larry enhanced the careers of many people working in the early intervention field before his untimely death in 2017.
