Prizes for Children and Drug Safety: Balancing Risk and Protection in Twentieth-Century America (Book)

Arthur J. Viseltear Award for book in the history of public health
Date: 11/13/2018 12:00:00 AM
Organization: American Public Health Association
Abstract: The Arthur J. Viseltear Award is given each year by the Medical Care Section of the American Public Health Association to a historian who has made outstanding contributions to the history of public health, either through a body of scholarship or through a recent book (published within the previous two years). This year the selection committee has chosen to honor Children and Drug Safety: Balancing Risk and Protection in Twentieth Century America (Rutgers University Press, 2018) for its outstanding and deeply insightful historical research and original contribution to science policy. Its focus on the politics of pediatric drug safety and the making of invasive drug markets and consumers the committee members felt, addresses a critical gap in public health histories of childhood and contributes to ongoing debates in the US on prescriptions and the role of experts.
