Has Your Research Made a Difference? Nominate Yourself or a Colleague for the HSR Impact Award

AcademyHealth is now accepting nominations for the HSR Impact Award, which recognizes outstanding health services research that has made a positive impact on health policy and/or practice, and has been successfully translated into health policy, management, or clinical practice. 

By moving knowledge into action, researchers can improve health and health care. The HSR Impact Award recognizes the effective dissemination and translation strategies that gave policymakers the evidence needed to inform their decisions.

The award winner will be announced at AcademyHealth’s 2014 Health Policy Conference, February 3-4 in Washington, D.C.
The author of the winning research receives:

  • $2,000; 
  • Complimentary registration, lodging, and travel to the 2014 National Health Policy Conference, where the award will be presented; and
  • Publication and wide dissemination as part of the AcademyHealth "HSR Impact" series.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Research may be published or unpublished, a single study or a body of work, the work of an individual or a team.
  • Time frame for when the research was conducted is open, but the impact should have occurred recently.
  • Nominators and nominees are not required to be AcademyHealth members.
  • Self-nominations will be accepted.

Nomination Deadline: August 31, 2013
