ComSHER Awards

The competition for ComSHER’s annual awards is always exciting, and gets more intense every year, as the division recognizes the best published articles with various accolades. This includes the Top Faculty Paper Awards, which honors the stellar work of our colleagues in the field. The Lori Eason Award, which comes with a cash prize of $1,000, is the largest student award in AEJMC. In light of ComSHER’s goal to motivate junior scholars, this award is given to the most outstanding student-authored paper presented at a ComSHER session at the AEJMC annual conference. ComSHER also hands out a Top Poster Award to the best ComSHER poster presented at the AEJMC annual conference, which likewise comes with an attractive cash prize of $100. Last but definitely not least, the ComSHER Article of the Year Award is given out to acknowledge and celebrate excellence in science, health, environment, and risk communication research.
