Hiram Beltran-Sanchez (CHS and CCPR) received the Early Achievement Award from the Population Association of America at the 2018 Awards Ceremony and Presidential Address Session on Friday afternoon. The PAA Early Achievement Award recognizes distinguished contributions to population research during the first ten years after receipt of the Ph.D. Contributions may be original research published as articles or books, significant newly collected data, or public policy achievement that broadens the impact of demography.
The award citation commended Hiram’s original contributions in all three areas: his innovative development of theory and rigorous research, his leadership in creating the Latin American Mortality Database, and the direct relevance of his research for public policy.
Congratulations to Hiram on this well-deserved recognition!
