Lester R. Curtin Award

The Lester R. (Randy) Curtin Award was established recently to help promising young health statisticians get the skills and training they need to make significant contributions in their area of study. The award was created to honor Curtin’s memory and his long career of working tirelessly to teach and mentor his colleagues at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics. Awardees receive support for travel to the ASA’s annual Conference on Statistical Practice. For more information, visit the award section of the ASA’s website.
