The Carl Bell Memorial Award was established to honor the late Carl Bell, M.D who was a remarkable psychiatrist and nationally known for his community psychiatry work especially on the Southside of Chicago. Professor Bell authored of over 500 publications, recipient of the American Psychiatric Association Distinguished Service Award, Bernard P. Harrison Award of Merit, NCCHC’s highest honor, for his long involvement with the organization and his groundbreaking work, E.Y. Williams Distinguished Senior Clinical Scholar Award from the National Medical Association in 1992, the Adolph Meyer Award for Lifetime Achievement in Psychiatric Research in 2019, in addition to working on many national scientific boards. Dr. Bell was a vocal crusader for health equity and violence prevention in underserved communities, and a pioneer in alcohol research with developing our current understanding of the long-term effects of in-utero alcohol exposure. He was a well-respected and beloved teacher, colleague, mentor and clinician. Thus, the Carl C. Bell Memorial Award was developed in his honor to continue to champion mental health disparities, community violence and inspire our youth for future greatness.
