Dr. Duwve's Research Receives 2018 Charles C. Shepard Science Award
For her Journal of Infectious Disease article detailing the transmission network of the 2015 HIV outbreak in Scott County, Dr. Joan Duwve, health policy and management professor, has won the 2018 Charles C. Shepard Science Award in Data Methods and Study Design. This award truly is the 'Academy Awards of the CDC,' honoring only four original manuscripts (out of >3,600 published in 2018!) among the following categories (1) Assessment (2) Prevention and Control (3) Laboratory Science and (4) Data Methods and Study Design. It speaks volumes towards the quality and impact of Dr. Duwve's work in Indiana that the Shepard Award Committee saw fit to recognize it two years in a row. The award-winning study is entitled: Detailed Transmission Network Analysis of a Large Opiate-Driven Outbreak of HIV Infection in the United States. Congratulations, Dr. Duwve!
