Awards

The Carl S. Shultz Award for Lifetime Achievement

This award honors individuals who have made an outstanding lifetime contribution to the field of population and reproductive health. It is named for Carl S. Shultz, a pediatrician and public servant who was instrumental in the creation and implementation of the federal family planning program, commonly known as Title X. At the first meeting of our Section in 1976, Shultz proposed the establishment of this award. Sadly, he died soon after, and Section members decided to honor his memory by naming the award for him. Awardees comprise an honor roll of the field of reproductive health in the US and around the world.
