Ann Wolfe Award
The Ann F. Wolfe Award was created and first awarded in 2001 in recognition of Dr. Wolfe's guiding force in the health of mothers and children throughout her career. She gave many years of service to North Carolina women, children and their families. She was a member of the NC Perinatal Association Board at the time of her death in February 2002. In giving this award we look for those who have given likewise over many years of service.
