The award recognizes the work of investigators in infection control/health care epidemiology in practice for fewer than 15 years. Talbot was chosen for the award based on the breadth and quality of his contributions to infection prevention and control/health care epidemiology and on the scientific merit of his accepted abstract.

Talbot’s efforts in the development of VUMC’s hand hygiene improvement program were mentioned in program materials for the conference.
