A paper by four researchers from RTI’s Patient and Family Engagement Research Program has been selected as the winner of Health Education & Behavior’s Lawrence W. Green Paper of the Year Award. The paper, “Identifying Synergies in Multilevel Interventions: The Convergence Strategy,” was written by RTI Program Director Megan Lewis with co-authors Brittany Zulkiewicz, public health analyst, Pamela Williams, senior research scientist, and Susana Peinado, public health analyst.
Named for a former Health Education & Behavior editor, the Lawrence W. Green Paper of the Year Award recognizes authors published in Health Education & Behavior during the preceding year. Winning papers, judged by the Editors and Editorial Board, exemplify the highest level of scholarship and singularly important contribution to the literature of the field.
The team will receive recognition of their program’s achievement during the SOPHE’s 69th Annual Conference Awards Ceremony in April, where Ms. Zulkiewicz will be accepting the award on behalf of the team.
The award carries a $1,000 honorarium, which the team has donated to a SOPHE student who has demonstrated academic excellence and a commitment to public health through a career in health education.
