The AADMD Congratulates EP's CEO Joe Valenzano on UNICO Americanism Award Mar 14, 2013

"The American Academy of Developmental Medicine and Dentistry (AADMD) congratulates our colleague Joe Valenzano on the announcement of his being named as the recipient of the 2013 UNICO Americanism Award. UNICO is a national Italian American service organization. The name is the Italian word for unique, one of a kind.

Joe is the Publisher-CEO of Exceptional Parent Magazine and a known advocate, educator and supporter of the disability community. This particular award was in recognition of his work on behalf of military families impacted by disabilities - either a child with intellectual and developmental disabilities or a warrior with an acquired service related disability. Exceptional Parent Magazine has provided military specific editorial content for the Dept of Defense's Exceptional Family Member Program for many years. Joe has served with distinction on a number of advisory boards in the support of our military families. Congratulations to Joe on this recognition."
