Peter Rosenbaum, professor, Department of Pediatrics, has been awarded the inaugural Medal of Excellence in Childhood Disability.

Peter Rosenbaum, McMaster professor in pediatrics and co-founder of the CanChild Centre for Childhood Disability Research, has been awarded the inaugural Medal of Excellence in Childhood Disability from the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital.

The new medal is the hospital's highest honour, recognizing a current leader who has made significant advances and a global impact in the field of childhood disability. The award is for Rosenbaum's positive influence and lifetime commitment to improving the lives of children with disabilities and their families.

"I am both delighted and humbled to receive the inaugural Holland Bloorview Medal of Excellence in Childhood Disability," said Rosenbaum. "To me this award celebrates the often overlooked field of research in childhood disability, whereas between CanChild at McMaster University and Holland Bloorview in Toronto, we are recognized around the world for the quality and relevance of our work, and the impact that it is having on the lives of young people with impairments and their families."
