In memory of ALEX WEINTROB, MD . . .
The American Society for Adolescent Psychiatry (ASAP) is saddened by the recent passing of Dr. Weintrob, a prominent ASAP member, active member of ASAP's Membership Committee, and former ASAP President as well as a former NYCCAP President and AACAP member. Dr. Weintrob contributed much to ASAP including recommending the establishment of a "senior psychiatrist" membership category that would allow those who were retired and yet not qualifying for life status to remain members of ASAP but at a discounted rate. ASAP ratified this into our membership structure in 2019. He believed that we needed aggressive recruitment strategies but also strategies to retain existing members, including those who were retired. A graduate of Harvard College and University of Pennsylvania Medical School, Alex was Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Cornell and was actively practicing until his untimely death. He served as the President of the American Society for Adolescent Psychiatry, the New York Council for Adolescent Psychiatry, and the New York Council on Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. (read more)

Our deepest appreciation to our sponsors:
Members of the American Society for Adolescent Psychiatry become a part of the most prominent organization dedicated to Adolescent Psychiatry. ASAP provides continuing medical education programs to mental health professionals. Members also receive national and local fellowships, access to ASAP's referrals network, and help provide a voice for adolescent psychiatry. We invite you to join ASAP and a recognized member of the adolescent treatment community.
The American Board of Adolescent Psychiatry (ABAP) was established to offer a route to certification for psychiatrists with competence in treating adolescents and young adults who have not obtained formal subspecialty training in the treatment of children. In 2011, ABAP was reorganized under the auspices of the American Society for Adolescent Psychiatry (ASAP).
