Major Caraveo National Service Award

This award recognizes a medical or prescribing psychologist who strives to help underserved populations.

Sponsor: Division 55

Description

Army psychologist Maj. L. Eduardo Caraveo, PhD, dedicated his life to helping people for whom mental health care is often out of reach, but that life that was cut tragically short on Nov. 5, 2009, when he was among those shot by an Army psychiatrist at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas.

To honor Caraveo, Div. 55 (American Society for the Advancement of Pharmacotherapy) has created an annual award in his honor. The Major Caraveo National Service Award recognizes a medical or prescribing psychologist who strives to help underserved populations, as Caraveo did throughout his career.

The award carries a $500 stipend.
