    Dr. Mattox was awarded the Laurance N. Nickey, MD, Lifetime Achievement Award for exceptional public health service – only the second award bestowed since its creation in 2019.

    The exclusivity of the award makes it such an honor to present, says Dallas pediatrician Benjamin Lee, MD. He chairs TMA’s Council on Science and Public Health, which gives out the award.

    This is not an annual award, and a winner will only be chosen if an individual meets the criteria of lifetime achievement in public health.
