Dr. Anna Huttenlocher Wins Community Impact Award
Madison, Wisconsin - An American Family Children’s Hospital pediatric rheumatologist will be honored with a prestigious community leadership award next month.
The Arthritis Foundation of Dane County will award the Foundation’s Community Impact Leadership Award to Dr. Anna Huttenlocher at the Women Inspiring Change luncheon on October 1 at the Madison Concourse Hotel.
The Arthritis Foundation said that Huttenlocher was chosen for the award based on her work in juvenile arthritis, experience in the field of pediatric rheumatology and emphasis on giving back to the community.
“I have been inspired by many women,” said Dr. Huttenlocher. “To be able to give back to the community, help inspire other women and girls and influence change in any facet of life is an honor.”
Besides working with children with arthritis, Huttenlocher is a professor in the departments of medical microbiology and immunology and pediatrics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and director of the UW Medical Scientist Training Program. Her research focuses on understanding the basic molecular mechanisms that regulate directed cell migration and inflammation.
