A McMaster alumnus who has followed four McMaster University degrees with an illustrious career in the study and clinical care of autism is joining the Alumni Gallery.

Child psychiatrist Peter Szatmari, (’74, ’76, ‘80, ’87) has been the Chief, Child and Youth Mental Health Collaborative between The Hospital for Sick Children, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and the University of Toronto since 2012. This followed 30 years as a professor of psychiatry and behavioural neurosciences and pediatrics at McMaster and a long-term directorship of the Offord Centre for Child Studies.

Szatmari is being honoured for his inventive style of academic leadership. Over the years, he has been instrumental in building bridges and establishing collaborations across scientific fields, institutions, provinces, countries with one objective in mind: to improve the quality of life for children with psychiatric disorders.

He and four other distinguished McMaster graduates will be inducted into the Alumni Gallery on Wednesday, June 4, 2014 in Convocation Hall at the McMaster Alumni Association Awards Ceremony.
