The Applied Public Health Statistics Section of the American Public Health Association (APHA) presents the Mortimer Spiegelman Award annually to honor a statistician below the age of 40 who has made outstanding contributions to health statistics, especially public health statistics.

The Spiegelman award recipient must be a health statistician who has made outstanding contributions to statistical methodology and its applications in public health (broadly defined).

The award is open to early-career investigators regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, or citizenship. Specifically, candidates must meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Candidate must be under age 40 throughout the award calendar year
  • Candidate must have earned a terminal degree in statistics or a statistics-related field in the last 10 years

For those earning a terminal degree after considerable professional experience or with extenuating life circumstances such as the birth of a child, the committee will make exceptions to the eligibility requirements. If extenuating circumstances affect the eligibility of your nominee, please include a description in your nominating letter.

A nomination should include the following:

  • A letter that states the candidate’s date of birth and describes the candidate’s contributions to statistics for public health
  • Up to three letters of support
  • The candidate’s detailed CV

Submit nominations by May 1.

The Spiegelman award was established in 1970 and is presented annually at the APHA meeting. The award serves the following purposes:

  • To honor the outstanding achievements of both the recipient and Spiegelman
  • To encourage further involvement in public health by the finest young statisticians
  • To increase awareness of APHA and the Applied Public Health Statistics Section in the academic statistical community
