Pittsboro psychiatrist receives Medlin Award

Matt Chaney//May 31, 2018

Dr. Charles Cooper of Pittsboro was selected by the North Carolina Bar Association as this year’s recipient of the NCBA’s John Medlin Jr. Award.

The award goes to North Carolina residents who are not lawyers who make contributions to the administration of justice and judicial independence.

Cooper was selected for the award for his work as executive director of HRC Behavioral Health & Psychiatry, through which he has provided assistance to North Carolina attorneys through BarCARES and the Transitioning Lawyers Commission.

His background includes a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Trinity College in Hartford, Conn. and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

Apart from serving as executive director at HRC since 1987, Cooper serves as director of professional affairs for the NC Psychological Association, as an ex officio board member and program director of BarCARES and as treasurer of Piedmont Care.

Cooper will receive the award at a ceremony during the 2018 NCBA Annual Meeting in Wilmington on June 21.

The award is named for the longtime president and CEO of Wachovia.
