The Carol J. Rowland Hogue Award for Outstanding Mid-Career Achievement is awarded annually to recognize a mid-career scientist who has made an exceptional contribution to the practice of epidemiology. This contribution might be a body of work or a singular achievement in epidemiologic research, applications of epidemiology to promote public health, or methodologic advances. Contributions via teaching, mentoring, and service will be secondary considerations. This award is funded by the Department of Epidemiology, Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University in honor of Dr. Carol Hogue.
At the time of the submission open date, a candidate must be an SER member who is a mid-career epidemiologist, defined as 10 or more years and less than 20 years from terminal degree. These limits may be extended by one year for each child of the nominee, for medical leaves, for caregiving for a spouse or parent, or for other similar considerations. Epidemiologists in academia, government and the private sector are eligible. Career accomplishments, evidence of strong trajectory, and promise for continued contributions are core criteria that are used for selection of the annual awardee.
