Minnesota Adjunct Assistant Professor Honored for Photography

Dr. David L. Parker, adjunct faculty member at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health and noted social documentary photographer, received the Distinguished Service Award from the National Child Labor Committee at the twenty-eighth annual Lewis Hines Awards for Service to Children and Youth. The awards are presented annually to 10 recipients for unheralded and exceptional service to young people. Driven by a desire to protect children from what are often deplorable and extreme working conditions, Dr. Parker has published two photographic books on child labor, in addition to providing important scientific work on the health impacts of work on young workers.
