Institute of Medicine honors members for outstanding service
Date:10/21/2013

Clayton is the chair of the IOM Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice and holds a record of extraordinary service as a member and chair of many IOM committees. She chaired two IOM committees on family planning against a backdrop of considerable public and political attention to contraceptive service policies. Additionally, she chaired the Committee to Review Adverse Effects of Vaccines. Under her leadership and direction, the committee produced a report that represents the single most definitive review of the epidemiological, clinical, and biological evidence regarding possible adverse events associated with vaccines covered by the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. With the knowledge that this work would be central to ongoing litigation concerning vaccine safety, Clayton assisted the committee in formulating sober, evidence-based conclusions about the possible biological mechanisms and causality relevant to a series of vaccines. This was an immense effort, and her leadership and commitment to the highest integrity made this a prime example of the value of the IOM's work. Clayton was co-chair of the Committee on Commercial Sexual Exploitation and Sex Trafficking of Minors in the United States and currently serves as a member of the IOM Council. She exhibits a level of diligence and dedication that is rare, and the fact that she continues to be asked to provide expert consultation is a tribute to the quality of advice and leadership she provides. Clayton is Craig Weaver Professor of Pediatrics and professor of law, Center for Biomedical Ethics and Society, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn.
