DCEG senior investigators Eric Engels, M.D., M.P.H., and Sholom Wacholder, Ph.D., gave presentations at the meeting. Dr. Engels spoke on “Epidemiologic contributions to recent cancer trends among HIV-infected people in the United States,” and Dr. Wacholder discussed “Rates and difference between rates.”

The mission of the AES is to provide a scientific forum for senior epidemiologists, who engage in a lively interchange of ideas with their peers at each annual meeting. Members are nominated and evaluated on the basis of the quality and impact of their epidemiologic accomplishments and contributions; academic activities, such as teaching and mentoring; and other aspects of professional work, including administrative leadership and community service.
