Flaura K. Winston, MD, PhD , founder and Scientific Director of the Center for Injury Research and Prevention (CIRP) at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and a tenured professor of pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, was recently awarded the 2022 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation David E. Rogers Award by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). The award is given out annually to a medical school faculty member who has “made major contributions to improving public health and health care.”
Winston was selected in part due to her efforts and leadership in the field of injury prevention and public safety, which have led to a 30% decline in crashes and fewer fatalities when crashes do occur. One of her recent accomplishments highlighted by the announcement of the award was her recent work with Ohio’s statewide validated virtual driver assessment system that helps young drivers become safer drivers.
