In 2015, in recognition of our 100th year as a leader in public health education, research and practice, the Yale School of Public Health is planning to recognize three leading innovators with the Winslow Medal. The medal commemorates the outstanding contributions of Charles-Edward Amory Winslow, the founder of our School, and many would say the founder of modern public health in the United States. The recipient's work must exemplify C.-E.A. Winslow's ideals, especially his concern for the social factors affecting health. A second criteria used in selecting the recipient is outstanding achievement in public health leadership, scholarship, or contribution to society.
Recipients will receive a $10,000 honorarium and will be invited to present a Centennial Winslow lecture at the Yale School of Public Health.
