Congratulations to our very own Dr. Jeannie Larsen for receiving this year’s Seattle Children’s Richard A. Molteni Award for Professionalism and Quality for a Community Pediatrician. This award honors Dr. Richard Molteni, Chief Medical Officer of Seattle Children's Hospital from 1998 to 2008, by recognizing members of the Seattle Children’s medical staff who stand out amongst their peers in professionalism and quality of patient care.
Dr. Larsen was chosen from hundreds of physicians in recognition of her work in developing the Promoting First Relationships program. This program is dedicated to promoting children’s social-emotional development through responsive, nurturing caregiver-child relationships. It has provided training for healthcare providers who then support parents and caregivers during the crucial early years of development. Her ongoing work in this area will benefit children and those who love children for years to come. Congratulations Dr. Larsen!
