APHA Honors BU Professor with Martha May Eliot Award

Dr. Eugene Declercq, a Boston University School of Public Health professor of community health sciences, received the Martha May Eliot Award at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the American Public Health Association. For most of his career, Dr. Declercq has focused his research on the complex policies and practices related to maternal and infant health. His most recent research has explored the differences among hospitals in rates of cesarean sections, findings that suggest that the variances in cesarean rates may be partly attributable to the differences in practices and culture at the hospital level.
