I know this is in the Journal, but I fear some read this Blog and not the Journal and it seems important that we all acknowledge the enormous contributions Sue Baker has made to the field. Besides, the photo in the link is lovely.
Most members of the injury prevention community agree that Sue Baker of Johns Hopkins is one of our foremost leaders. Her many and varied contributions were recognised by the award she received from Columbia University last June – what they regard as ‘the highest prize in public health’. Highest or not, it is unquestionably long overdue and fully deserved. More details are given in a wonderful editorial in the October issue by Carol Runyan.
But do visit this website for a charming photo and reference to Sue’s exploits as a pilot! http://gazette.jhu.edu/2010/04/26/susan-baker-receives-highest-prize-in-public-health/
