Visiting Lectureships Program

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Julius B. Richmond Visiting Lectureships Program provides four awards of up to $3,000 each to fund two-day educational programs focusing on the field of tobacco control and children's health. The lectureships are designed to promote secondhand smoke (SHS) exposure control and to integrate secondhand smoke prevention activities in pediatric education in State AAP Chapters and educational institutions in the US and internationally. Visiting Lectureships are funded by the Flight Attendant Medical Research Institute, unless noted otherwise. Read more about the Visiting Lectureships Program.

Please note that the 2014 application deadline has passed. Future application cycle information will be posted as it becomes available.
