SEATTLE – Nominations are now open for the 2020 Roux Prize, which is awarded annually to an individual who has used health evidence in “bold ways to make people healthier” – and to highlight how visionaries use health data to change lives.
The $100,000 prize will be awarded in June of 2020 in London.
“We established the prize to honor individuals at the forefront of global health innovation in data science and who have used that data in bold ways to make people healthier,” said David Roux, the award benefactor and a founding board member of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), a global health research organization at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine.
The recipient of the Roux Prize is selected by members of IHME’s Board Executive Committee.
Nominations are open until January 31, 2020. For more information and bios of past awardees, visit http://www.healthdata.org/roux-prize.
