The award supports promising young members of the medical school’s clinical faculty early in their academic career.  Zolotor will receive $3,000 to use at his discretion in support of his research and scholarly activities.

Zolotor has a great deal of experience in research and clinical evaluation of child abuse and medical neglect.  His research has focused on causes and consequences of abuse and neglect, and he has a particular interest in prevention programs.  Two main focuses of his research at present are the evaluation of a statewide shaken baby prevention program and the development of a new high tech prevention program for adolescent parents.

The Woods Award was established through the generosity of the late James Watson Woods, M.D., a cardiologist and professor in the School of Medicine from 1953 to 1983.
