Annals and ACP announce recipients of Junior Investigator Recognition Award
Date:4/7/2011

SAN DIEGO, April 7, 2011 -- Annals of Internal Medicine and the American College of Physicians (ACP) will award Crystal Smith-Spangler, MD, and William Harvey, MD, MSc, with the Junior Investigator Recognition Award on Thursday, April 7, at Internal Medicine 2011, ACP's annual scientific meeting. The honor is given to junior internal medicine physicians and investigators for original research and review articles published in Annals of Internal Medicine.

"As young researchers, Dr. Smith-Spangler and Dr. Harvey have published articles that have the potential to influence the practice of internal medicine," said Christine Laine, MD, MPH, FACP, editor-in-chief of Annals and Senior Vice President of ACP. "We look forward to seeing the implications of their work in clinical practice."

Now in its first year, Annals' Junior Investigator Recognition Awards will be presented annually to two junior physicians. Annals and ACP will give an award for the most outstanding article by a first author who is in an internal medicine residency program or a general medicine or internal medicine subspecialty fellowship program. An award also will be given for the most outstanding article with a first author who is within three years of completing his or her training in internal medicine or one of its subspecialties.

Dr. Smith-Spangler, an internist at VA Health Care Center in Palo Alto, California is being recognized for the article she authored while in training. "Population Strategies to Decrease Sodium Intake and the Burden of Cardiovascular Disease: A Cost-Effectiveness Analysis" was published in the April 20, 2010, issue of Annals of Internal Medicine.

Dr. Harvey, a rheumatologist at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, is being honored for an article he authored within three years of completing his training. "Association of Leg-Length Inequality with Knee Osteoarthritis: A Cohort Study" was published in the March 2, 2010, issue of Annals of Internal Medicine.

Selection of award winners considers the article's novelty, methodological rigor, clarity of presentation, and potential to influence practice, policy, or future research. Judges include Annals' Editors and representatives from Annals' Editorial Board and the American College of Physicians' Education/Publication Committee.
