The Martin-Peterson Global Health Scholar Award was created in late 2016 with a lead gift from ACOG Past President James N. Martin, Jr., MD. The Award honors Dr. Peterson’s lifelong dedication to improving the health care of all women globally, his leadership in the initiation of the ACOG Global Operations Advisory Group in 2011 which continues to this day, the respect and admiration that the world Ob-Gyn community holds for him as an advocate for women’s health worldwide, and the need to support activities to enhance the role and recognition of ACOG as the foremost advocate for women’s health in this country and abroad.
