As an ACOP member, he was the Program Director for the annual conference in Denver, Colorado.

The Harold H. Finkel, DO and Arnold Melnick, DO Community Pediatrician of the Year is awarded to pediatricians who have exemplified the values of Dr. Harold H. Finkel. Dr. Finkel served as a community pediatrician for over 50 years and was well regarded by his patients, students, residents, and fellow pediatricians. In 2013, the name of Dr. Arnold Melnick was added to the award with the permission of Dr. Finkel’s family. Dr. Melnick was a close friend of Dr. Finkel. Both were past Presidents of ACOP.

This award is to honor those that are leaders in their community in addressing the healthcare needs of children. This year ACOP is honoring Dr. Daniel Taylor. He has been a general pediatrician for the past 19 years at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. Dr. Taylor has been a local and national voice on issues affecting vulnerable populations, focusing on issues that affect children living in poverty and violence.
