Henry L. Barnett Award
This award was established in 1990 as the "Kidney Award", but the name was changed in 1994 to the Henry L. Barnett Award to recognize the contributions of Dr Barnett to the field of pediatric nephrology.
The Pediatric History Center (PHC) houses all historic and official Academy records. Publications, policy statements, selected documents, photographs, and books on AAP history are preserved as a lasting record and resource that documents the Academy role in “advancing child health”. The PHC also includes oral histories, interviews of pediatric leaders including Dr. Henry Barnett. You can view this interview here.
