First Annual Fletcher Prize Awarded

We are pleased to announce that Suhas Gondi, a first year medical student at Harvard Medical School, has been selected to receive the first annual Fletcher Prize in Population Medicine.  The Fletcher Prize is awarded by the Department for the best paper on a topic in Population Medicine written by a Harvard Medical School or Harvard School of Dental Medicine student. Papers were judged by an expert panel of DPM faculty.  Gondi’s winning submission, “Negotiating Prescription Drug Prices to Improve Access and Reduce Costs”, highlights an important public health problem, high U.S. drug prices, and a promising solution, negotiating prices in the private sector. Gondi will receive a $1,000 prize for his award. Congratulations!
