Faculty Recognition

Ernest Lyman Stebbins Medal

The Ernest Lyman Stebbins Medal recognizes a member of the BSPH faculty who has made extraordinary contributions to the teaching programs at the Bloomberg School over a period of at least five years. The recipient should be identified with teaching programs that influence the School beyond the boundaries of a single department. These accomplishments may include projects that extend beyond the School but for which the School has responsibility.
