Outstanding women selected for award

OKLAHOMA CITY - The Women in Pediatric Academic Medicine Committee at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine has announced recipients of the 2011 Outstanding Woman in Pediatric Medicine Award.

The recipients are Anne G. Wlodaver, neonatologist with OU Children's Physicians, and Maria Delivoria-Papadopoulous, of Drexel University College of Medicine, Philadelphia.

The annual award recognizes a member of the OU College of Medicine faculty - retired or currently employed - for achievements in pediatric academic medicine, as well as a national leader in academic pediatric medicine.

Wlodaver sees patients as part of OU Children's Physicians and is also a clinical associate professor in the OU College of Medicine department of pediatrics, section of pediatric neonatal-perinatal medicine. She has been with the university since 1990. She is board- certified in general pediatrics and neonatal-perinatal medicine.

Since 2006, Wlodaver has served as the medical director of the newborn resuscitation service and organized the OU Neonatal Resuscitation team at The Children's Hospital at OU Medical Center.

Wlodaver first met Delivoria-Papadopoulous, who became her mentor, after earning her medical degree in 1977.

Delivoria-Papadopoulos is professor emeritus of pediatrics and physiology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, professor of pediatrics, physiology, obstetrics and gynecology at Drexel University College of Medicine, chief of the division of neonatal-perinatal medicine and the Ralph Brenner Endowed Chair in Pediatrics at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children.

The awards will be presented at 8 a.m. Dec. 8 during the Pediatric Grand Rounds at the OU College of Medicine. After the presentation, Delivoria-Papadopoulos and Wlodaver will present a career development workshop on Pathways to Success in Academic Pediatrics.

OKC Indian Clinic receives awards

OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma City Indian Clinic tied for the most awards received by a health care provider at the Government Performance and Results Act awards meeting.

The White Cloud Health Station in White Cloud, Kan., shared the top spot with the Oklahoma City Indian Clinic.

The GPRA requires all government agencies to create a five-year strategic plan, draft an annual performance plan and report on progress toward long- and short-term goals for better patient service.

"Reaching and exceeding the exceptional standards set forth by the GPRA is a constant goal of the clinic staff," said Robyn Sunday- Allen, CEO of the OKCIC.

The clinic was recognized for patient care provided by large facilities serving more than 5,000 people in the GPRA population.

The awards presented by GPRA to the clinic include the Physician Champion Award presented to Daniel Molina; Best Goal Outcome for diabetes management for controlled blood pressure; Best Goal Outcome for pap smear program; Best Goal Outcome for mammogram program; and Best Goal Outcome for adult influenza program (patients over age 65).

Molina was instrumental in developing screening strategies and laboratory procedures that allowed for more patients to get the services they needed. He also helped implement an innovative scheduling model that streamlines patient care for better customer service.

The Oklahoma City Indian Clinic staff cares for more than 16,000 patients from more than 220 federally recognized tribes every year.
