Two AHA Members Awarded MacArthur Fellowships

MacArthur Foundation. These prestigious and munificent grants are awarded to recognize creative accomplishments in varied fields. The $500,000 grants can be used by the recipients in any way they wish, and are awarded as much for the record of accomplishment as for the promise of future contributions.

As a result of these changes, we show a net increase of 250 total memberships over the previous year—an increase of 1.7 percent—to 14,196 total members. Article By: Robert B. Townsend
