Eisenberg Name Associated with Two New Honors

April 23, 2010

The legacy of Leon Eisenberg and of Leon and Carola Eisenberg is remembered with two additional honors. At Johns Hopkins, where Dr. Eisenberg had a fellowship in child psychiatry and then taught for some years, an anonymously-funded scholarship for needy Hopkins medical students has been renamed as The Leon Eisenberg Scholarship. Locally, the Children’s Hospital Division of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities, headed by Kerim Munir, honors Leon and Carola Eisenberg with an annual Eisenberg Award on Wednesday, April 28, at the Harvard Faculty Club. Dr. Carola Eisenberg will present the first Award this year to Dr. Ludwik Szymanski, Director Emeritus, Psychiatry, Center for Autism and Related Disorders at the Institute for Community Inclusion.
