UVa Woman Gets Genius Grant

UVa epidemiologist Janine Jagger has been selected as a 2002 MacArthur Fellow by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. She and the 23 other fellows will receive $500,000 over the next five years to spend any way that they see fit. The 52-year-old Jagger is described by the foundation as “a leader in the design and dissemination of means and strategies to protect health care workers from the transmission of bloodborne disease.” She intends to use the money to educate healthcare workers in developing countries. Claudia Pinto has the story in today’s Progress.
