Dr. Brian R. Flay
2002 Research Laureate
Dr. Flay stands in the highest ranks among the investigators in our field, not only in the United States, but with international recognition as well. He has a broader than usual perspective on the application of behavioral and social sciences in public health and education. His work spans such applications in institutional settings as well as in the mass media and in community-wide efforts, with particular attention to the health and related problems of adolescents and increasing emphasis on the necessity of combining the institutional and community components in comprehensive, integrated, and coherent programs.
