The Boston Children's Hospital Alumni Association maintains relationships between the alumni of Boston Children's residency and fellowship programs and their colleagues among the hospital's faculty.
Nearly 20 percent of chiefs at the nation's top pediatric hospitals trained at Boston Children's, either in our residency or fellowship programs.
Boston Children’s alumni:
- lead the way in clinical care and innovation
- advance medical education through academic lectures and teaching activities
- perform breakthrough research that aims to improve the understanding and treatment of many pediatric diseases and disorders

The Community Pediatric Award
The Community Pediatric Award is the highest award granted annually to physicians in the greater Boston Children’s community. Traditionally, it honors pediatricians whose work takes place primarily outside the walls of Boston Children’s Hospital. Boston Children’s and the Pediatric Physicians' Organization at Boston Children's Hospital (PPOC) has expanded its presence both locally and throughout Massachusetts and surrounding states, meaning we have a rich and varied group of pediatricians, locally and farther afield, who are part of our diverse and robust hospital community. Those chosen recipients, nominated by their peers, embody the Boston Children's mission of exemplary patient care, compassionate treatment of all children, commitment to innovation, or excellence in teaching.
This year’s recipients are Donald DeLollis, MD, and Rita DeLollis, MD, of Medford Pediatrics; Rachel Heppen, MD, of Holliston Pediatrics; and David Salomon, MD, of HVMA Chelmsford. We congratulate and commend their service and care as doctors and individuals who tirelessly serve their community in an effort to bring better pediatric care to those in the greater Boston area and abroad. Learn about the recipients and their work.
The Susan Brooks Award
The Susan Brooks Award is given annually to a resident and a faculty or administrative staff member who has shown exemplary services to his or her patients, colleagues, and the Boston Combined Residency Program community, and is the utmost example of service leadership within the residency program, just as Susan was for so many years.
This year’s recipients are Jessica Angerman and Kieley Chapman, MD. We congratulate and commend their service! Learn about the recipients and their work.
Have you renewed your alumni membership dues?
We are grateful for alumni like you and for your history with Boston Children's Hospital.
Despite the unprecedented challenges of the past two years, Boston Children's remains among the nation’s premier pediatric institutions for healing and learning, and that’s in large part due to your generosity. Our Alumni Association is much more than a means to stay connected with colleagues. Together, we are providing a bright future for Boston Children’s and the kids in our care.
Your membership renewal will fund in-person social events to support wellness for residents given the many challenges of the pandemic. It will also help sponsor events like the annual Blackfan lecture, which will feature Dr. Jane Newburger, Associate Cardiologist-in-Chief, Academic Affairs; Commonwealth Chair of Pediatrics, Commonwealth Professor of Pediatrics, HMS, as well as one of our very own alumni, in 2022. In addition, your support helps to provide the annual Travel Grants for residents and fellows, assist with hospital renovations and facility initiatives, and much more.
Boston Children’s Hospital’s Alumni Association has provided students and faculty with learning and financial opportunities for more than 100 years. Please keep this tradition alive by renewing your membership today.
