One University of Virginia doctor is getting a big honor for his work studying the H1N1 pandemic of 2009.
Doctor James Turner, Director of Student Health at UVa, is receiving the Edward Hitchcock Award for Outstanding Contribution in College Health.

Currently, Turner is working through the College Health Surveillance Network to gather data on vaccine delivery, communicable disease prevalence and other sources of mortality on college campuses.
