Thanks to the diligent efforts of our dedicated committee members, we have arrived at the list of ASA Family Section award winners. I know that each of these committees worked hard to seriously evaluate many possible winners, and so thank you to them – and to everyone who took the time to submit their work, or the work of their colleagues, for consideration.
The awards will be celebrated at the Family Section reception (held jointly with the Population Section), at the ASA meetings in Philadelphia, Sunday August 12th (7:30-9:30pm, Tir Na Nog Irish Bar & Grill, 1600 Arch St, http://tirnanogphilly.com/.)
