Albert Schweitzer Award
The Albert Schweitzer Award is given annually to a graduating HSPH student whose past work and current activities have been marked by a “reverence for life” and who has sought, as expressed by Schweitzer, to “make my life my argument.” The selection committee gives special emphasis to service activities undertaken by nominees during the course of their studies at HSPH.
