The award is named for Alan Stoudemire, MD, FACLP, a highly respected clinician and educator and a prolific author and editor. Dr. Stoudemire was professor of Psychiatry at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He received the Academy’s highest honor, the Thomas P. Hackett Memorial Award, in 1997.
Dr. Stoudemire passed away at age 49 in February 2000 of melanoma. Dr. James Levenson, Academy president at the time, wrote in his President’s Message for the Newsletter:
“In health and in illness Alan was a remarkable man, and an inspiration to us all. He brought a level of serious commitment to his work few could match, yet never lost sight of life’s most important values of family and friendship, all the while wielding his wicked sense of humor, sparing no sacred cows.”
For an excellent and inspiring read about Dr. Stoudemire, see A Tribute to Alan Stoudemire, MD 1951–2000 in the February 2001 issue of Psychosomatics by Troy L. Thompson II, MD, FACLP (Academy president 1991-92).
