Dr. Theresa Guerriere, health specialist for the A. Harry Moore School, received the School Health Professional of the Year Award from the American School Health Association at the organization's annual conference in Cincinnati.
The American School Health Association was founded as the American Association of School Physicians in 1927 by 325 physicians at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association in Cincinnati. The charter members represented 29 states and Canada. The first president was William A. Howe, M.D., Buffalo, N.Y. Interest in the Association grew so rapidly that in 1936, the American Association of School Physicians opened its membership to all professionals interested in promoting school health. The organization officially became the American School Health Association.
