Awarded to a member who has made outstanding contributions to the care of children, to pediatric radiology, and to our Society.
Since 1998, the Society extends Honorary membership to individuals outside of the North American pediatric radiology physician community who have made outstanding contributions to the care of children.
The award is given to an individual whose work has had a significant impact on the way pediatric radiology is practiced or perceived. The award is given to recognize early and significant contributions to our specialty and Society.
The Singleton-Taybi Award is Awarded annually by the SPR to recognize the lifetime achievements of an SPR member in academic pediatric radiology. The awardee may be recognized for achievements in teaching/education, research, service, outreach, leadership/administration or any combination thereof. Prior to 2020, the award focused solely on education. Beginning in 2020, the award recognizes broader and more diverse contributions to academic pediatric radiology.
