Key Initiatives

Increase visibility of awards and raise the level of recognition offered to award recipients
  • The Awards Committee systematized the placement of stories, including photos of award recipients, in the ACE newsletter and on the ACE webpage following the Annual Meeting.
  • ACE now announces award recipients in advance of the Annual Meeting as part of publicity for the meeting.
  • Prior and future award recipients, particularly of the Lilienfeld Award, are asked to develop their remarks for posting on the ACE web page.
  • In collaboration with Associate Members, a short article about current year award recipients will be submitted for publication in the ACE’s pages in the Annals of Epidemiology. 
     
The Awards Committee has reinstated a special, meeting-specific award that was initially introduced in 2014. 
The Awards Committee collaborates with Associate Members to increase the number of students applying for the Student Paper Award via social media and outreach with epidemiology departmental chairs. 

The Awards Committee shall select recipients for professional awards issued by the College. The Committee is currently seeking volunteers. If you are interested in joining the Committee, please complete the Committee Participation Form.
