Call for Nominations: John Goldsmith Award for Outstanding Contributions to Environmental Epidemiology
The ISEE Awards Committee solicits nominations each year for the John Goldsmith Award for "sustained and outstanding contributions to the knowledge and practice of environmental epidemiology." The award for 2012 will be presented at the 2012 ISEE Annual Conference in Columbia, South Carolina, USA, August 26 - 30, 2012. The recipient will be invited to present the John Goldsmith Memorial lecture at the conference. (Registration, airfare, and hotel costs will be paid by ISEE.)
This annual award was established to honor John Goldsmith, one of the organizers, early leaders, and constant supporters of the ISEE, who passed away in October 1999. Recipients have typically contributed in substantive and innovative fashion to the methods and practice of epidemiology over many years.
