Chandy John Receives Bailey K. Ashford Medal


Dr. John received the medal at the ASTMH annual meeting in Philadelphia, December 2011.

We are proud to announce that Division of Global Pediatrics director, Chandy John, MD, MPH, has received the Bailey K. Ashford Medal for distinguished work in tropical medicine from the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.  

In his own words, "The 'distinguished work' is shared work. It was a huge honor to receive the award, but it's a daily honor to work with our colleagues. What the award says more than anything is that we are on the right track, that our work is making a difference for underserved children in low-income countries, and that's what matters most."

Read more about this honor, which is awarded annually to a mid-career professional.
