    B. Outstanding Scientific Contribution to Public Health

    NIOSH is nominating the editors and staff of the NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards (Pocket Guide) for Outstanding Scientific Contribution to Public Health. The Pocket Guide is a vital source of general chemical hazard and control information for workers, employers, and occupational health professionals. It could be found in the pockets of rescuers at the World Trade Center, and is presently found in corporate offices, industrial plants, construction sites, and schools of public health.

    C. Lifetime Scientific Achievement

    NIOSH is nominating Marilyn A. Fingerhut, Ph.D. for the Lifetime Scientific Achievement Award to recognize her outstanding career of scholarship and leadership in preventing occupational disease, injury, and death among workers. During Dr. Fingerhut's 20 year career, she has conducted innovative and ground breaking research on dioxin, established herself as a champion and expert for occupational women's health issues, and has moved forward global occupational health risk assessment. She was instrumental in the development of the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA), the first agenda of its kind, and galvanized the global occupational health community's Occupational Centers while detailed to the World Health Organization (WHO). Her professional work is recognized nationally and internationally.
