Dr. Marc Stern, an affiliate assistant professor of health services at the University of Washington School of Public Health, has received this year’s B. Jaye Anno Award of Excellence in Communication from the National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC) for communications that have advanced the field of correctional health care.
Dr. Stern, also an internist, has had a distinguished career in correctional health care, serving as a practitioner, high-level administrator, researcher and consultant. He co-developed and taught for NCCHC’s Medical Director’s Leadership Institute, wrote and taught the Executive Manager in Correctional Healthcare program for the National Institute of Corrections, and contributed to the 2014 editions of NCCHC’s Standards for Health Services.
