In a White House ceremony this morning, Dr. T. Berry Brazelton was awarded the prestigious 2012 Presidential Citizens Medal in recognition of his exemplary deeds of service for the country and his fellow citizens. Dr. Brazelton accepted this distinguished honor on behalf of all children and their families, and all who protect and care for them. Says Dr. Brazelton, “I may be 94 years old, but I’m not done. We must all speak up for the children we care for who so often are unable to speak for themselves. We know so much more now than back when I began practicing pediatrics more than 60 years ago. But we must do more to act on what we know if we are to ensure that all children grow up to become adults who can cope with adversity, strengthen their communities, constructively participate in civic life and nurture the next generation to be prepared to do the same.” The For Our Babies campaign couldn’t agree more with Dr. Brazelton. His work on behalf of babies and their families inspires us to continue our efforts to promote healthier beginnings for all babies. For more information see the White House Press Release.
