The award recognizes Lange, a physician and researcher at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) for over 40 years, for her lifetime contributions to the care of children with cancer.

Lange served as a senior physician and director of clinical affairs in the Division of Oncology at CHOP, where she worked from 1976 until her retirement in 2013. She also held the Yetta Deitch Novotny Chair in Pediatric Oncology at the Hospital, and was a professor of Pediatrics in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. She continues to volunteer in CHOP’s Division of Oncology.

The ASPHO Distinguished Career Award honors a professional whose career has had a major impact on the subspecialty through some combination of research, education, patient care, and advocacy. Although Lange’s clinical work has covered many types of childhood cancer, she is most associated with groundbreaking investigations of pediatric leukemia.

Lange has previously been honored with the Robert Dunning Dripps Memorial Award for Excellence in Graduate Medical Education from the University of Pennsylvania, the lifetime achievement award from the Children’s Oncology Group, the Temple Alumni Achievement Award, and the Pitcher of Hope Award from the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
