Jonathan Mann Memorial Lecturer Award
2019's Jonathan Mann Memorial Lecturer, Anne Schuchat, MD

The Jonathan Mann Memorial Lecturer Award was established in 1999 to honor Dr. Jonathan Mann who lost his life in a 1998 plane crash. Dr. Mann was an accomplished state epidemiologist who was called the "architect of the global mobilization against AIDS” for his role as founding director of the World Health Organization’s Global Program on AIDS. Each year at the CSTE President’s Banquet, a public health lecture is given to honor Dr. Mann.

Lecturers are selected by the CSTE Executive Board for their demonstrated leadership in the public health community. CSTE recognizes lecturers with a plaque and a $1,000 honorarium. The lectureship is made possible annually by the CDC Foundation with proceeds from a generous gift from Richard E. Hoffman, MD, MPH, former Colorado state epidemiologist (1986-2001) and CSTE president (1994-1995).
