Shalon M. Irving Memorial
Junior Scientist Officer of the Year Award
The Shalon M. Irving Memorial Junior Scientist Officer of the Year award was named in memory of LCDR Shalon M. Irving, for her dedicated service to the USPHS Scientist Category and pervasive public health impact in the community. LCDR Irving was an epidemiologist in the Surveillance Branch of the Division of Violence Prevention in the CDC National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. Although LCDR Irving passed away in 2017, her valued contributions to the field of epidemiology including her research of health disparities among racial and ethnic minorities, consequences of intimate partner violence, and faculty appointments across three universities have endlessly changed this field.
This award recognizes a junior-level Scientist Officer for his or her achievements in a professional field, career growth and development, leadership skills, and USPHS involvement and commitment. Active duty USPHS Scientist Officers at the rank of O-4 or below are eligible. No distinction will be made based on clinical/research/regulatory/and management tracks.
