“University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) psychiatrist Katherine L. Wisner, MD, MS, a pioneer in the study of postpartum depression in women, is the recipient of the 2011 Women in Science Award from the American Medical Women’s Association. The award, given to a female physician who has made exceptional contributions to medical science, especially in women’s health, through research, publications, and leadership, was bestowed at the association’s annual meeting in Washington, DC, on April 2. “I am excited and honored to receive this award,” Dr. Wisner told Medscape Medical News. “I entered medicine at a time when little was known about perinatal mental health, and I accept the award in honor of the many women who have participated in studies that have advanced our knowledge about perinatal mental disorders and treatments.”

Congrats, Katherine!!
