The Tulane Medical Alumni Association honored alumnus Dr. John T. Wilson with the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions to the field of pediatrics and child public health. Wilson is a professor of pediatrics, section chief and director of the Children’s Clinical Research Center at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center–Shreveport.
The congressional passage of the 2012 FDA Safety and Innovation Act signifies Wilson’s lasting impact on children’s safety. This act secures enhanced drug labeling for children, making sure that drugs used for children have the same safety standards as those found in studies with adults.Upon receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Tulane Class of 1963 50th reunion celebration on May 16, Wilson credited his medical education with giving him the basis to achieve such success in his career. Fellow classmate Dr. Paul Winder, a Shreveport, La., physician, sponsored Wilson for the award.
