Linda Thompson, MD Selected as 2018 MNAAP Distinguished Service Award Recipient

Linda Thompson, MD received MNAAP’s 2018 Distinguished Service Award in May. She retired from HCMC after 38 years as an attending pediatrician and completed training to become a guardian ad litem for the judicial district

Over the years, she has been an outstanding pediatrician and educator, and was key to the establishment of child maltreatment evaluations at HCMC and Cornerhouse. Dr. Thompson has served as a member of the MNAAP child abuse prevention work group for the past three years and has been active in chapter efforts to reduce gun violence.

“For 20 years I was the primary care doctor for NICU graduates at HCMC, often following them into their teenage years. I attended many funerals during those years and witnessed much sadness as well as some triumphs. During the past 27 years, I have also worked with child abuse cases and have seen the development of this field culminating in the approval of child abuse pediatrics as a subspecialty by the ABP in 2009. Educating young pediatricians in Continuity Clinic has also been a great joy and has led to many long-term friendships for which I feel very privileged.”

Congratulations, Dr. Thompson
