‘Activist editor’ Richard Horton of The Lancet receives $100,000 Roux Prize for lifetime achievement in population health (4)

26 April, 2019

Dear Neil and HIFA members I wish to add my voice to congratulate Editor and activisit for a well deserved Roux price. At 57 yrs I think he has accomplished a lot. And having started working for Lancet medical journal in 1990, I have dought in mind he has contributed immensely to General medical information and primary research in medicine. I say so because I have been associated with the Lancet publication as a Diener medical librarian. 1820s in publication speaks volumes. Therefore Richard being in the driving seat for such a long time connects Richard to a huge readership world wide.
