The Starfield Award
When Prof. Starfield passed away in 2011, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health established the Barbara Starfield Scholarship Fund to support doctoral students who pursue study and research that continue Dr. Starfield's primary areas of focus. In continuing to honor her legacy, the ACG System Team instituted The Starfield Award. The Award will recognize the best use of the ACG System in key areas which reflect Dr. Starfield's work.
The Starfield Award will be given biannually in even numbered years, synchronized with the ACG International User Conference. The first Award will be given in May 2014, and applicants must submit completed applications by October 31, 2013. Download Application
