APA has planned a variety of activities for minority/underrepresented psychiatrists attending APA’s 2002 annual meeting. These activities will provide an opportunity to meet with colleagues, discuss issues, and share experiences.

APA’s minority/underrepresented caucuses serve as a forum for exchange on issues of concern and importance to their members. In Philadelphia, these caucuses will be meeting at the following times:

Caucus of Black Psychiatrists: May 20, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Caucus of Asian-American Psychiatrists: May 20, 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Caucus of International Medical Graduates: May 20, 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Caucus of Hispanic Psychiatrists: May 20, 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Caucus of Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Psychiatrists: May 20 and 21, 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Caucus of American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Psychiatrists: May 21, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The Caucus of Women Psychiatrists and the Association of Women Psychiatrists will hold their annual joint meeting and reception on Monday, May 20, at 7:30 p.m.

In addition to caucus meetings, the components under APA’s Council on National Affairs will be presenting awards to a number of distinguished psychiatrists. Keh-Ming Lin, M.D., director of Harbor-UCLA’s Research Center on the Psychobiology of Ethnicity, will be awarded the 2002 Kun-Po Soo Award for his contributions toward understanding the impact and import of Asian cultural heritage in areas relevant to psychiatry. The 2002 Solomon Carter Fuller Award will be given to former Rep. Louis Stokes for his pioneering role in significantly benefiting the quality of life for black people. David Larson, M.D., will be honored for his outstanding contributions to the field of psychiatry and religion as the recipient of the 2002 Oskar Pfister Award. Gabrielle Shapiro, M.D., will receive the 2002 Bruno Lima Award in recognition of her outstanding contribution as a district branch member to the care and understanding of the victims of disaster.
