APHA Honors NIEHS's Olden

The American Public Health Association has honored former NIEHS director Dr. Ken Olden with the Sedgwick Medal, the oldest and most prestigious award bestowed by APHA. The medal is awarded annually for outstanding public health service. Olden was selected for his extraordinary achievements in linking environmental health sciences with public health and the practice of medicine. He was among the first public officials to focus on the need for research into gene-environment interactions in understanding the development of chronic diseases. The honor was bestowed recently at APHA's annual meeting in Washington.
