IADR Aubrey Sheiham Award for Distinguished Research in Dental Public Health Sciences

The Executive Committee of the Behavioral, Epidemiologic and Health Services Research Group (BEHSR) of IADR announces the Aubrey Sheiham Award for Distinguished Research in Dental Public Health Sciences. This award recognizes a single research paper published between January 1, 2013 and October 31, 2013, in the field of dental public health; both applied and basic research papers are eligible.

The Sheiham award is intended to recognize excellence in dental public health research that would include research in epidemiology, biostatistics, health services, community-based prevention or health promotion, environmental health, health economics or health policy as applied to dentistry.

The award committee will accept self nominations or nominations by others until November 1, 2013. The paper should be accompanied by a brief letter describing why it is deemed worthy of the award. Nominations will be acknowledged by email. One of the primary authors for the manuscript selected for the award should be present at the appropriate IADR General Session to accept the award. If this is not possible someone should be designated to accept the award on their behalf. The senior author of the award will serve as one of the five judges for the two years following receipt of the awad, and will not be permitted to compete for the award during that two-year period.

The senior author will receive a cash award of $350, but all of the authors will be recognized.

Award deadline: November 1, 2013.

Please send nominations or enquiries to:
Sarah R. Baker, President
