Medicine-Biological Sciences Scholarship Program
Now in its 16th year, the Medicine-Biological Sciences Scholarship Program provides recognition and a monetary award to exceptional students from the Senior or 12th grade graduating class. Students applying for this program must be planning to enter a college or university to study Medicine or Biological Sciences.
This Scholarship rotates each year through the different counties that make up Chapter 2 of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
The monetary award is made after completion of one semester at a qualified university or college (12 units or more).
AAP-CA2 Vice President, Edward Curry, MD, FAAP, is Chair of the Scholarships Committee.
Committee on Service, Education, and Mentoring
Each year, AAP-CA Chapter 2 solicits papers/case studies from pediatric house staff as part of the Committee on Service, Education and Mentoring (CSEM) Annual Research Award presentation. AAP-CA2 members of the CSEM review all submitted papers and select two for presentation by their authors during the AAP-CA2 June Board of Directors meeting.

Dr. Chris Landon is Chair of this committee.
S. Michael Marcy Memorial Lecture
In 2014, the medical community lost a brilliant professional, and a friend. Dr. S. Michael Marcy was a member of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. A Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at both USC and UCLA, Dr. Marcy had the distinction of having served actively in the education and research activities at the 4 major teaching programs in Los Angeles.
In his honor, AAP-CA2 has established the S. Michael Marcy Memorial Lecture, the first of which took place on April 16, 2015. During this lecture, a world-renowned infectious disease physician is invited to speak on the latest advances of their field. In 2015 we had Mark H. Sawyer, MD, FAAP. The 2016 S. Michael Marcy Memorial Lecture speaker will feature Larry K. Pickering, MD. FAAP from the CDC.
