Fielding School professor receives award for work on population research


Hiram Beltrán-Sánchez recently received the Early Achievement Award from the Population Association of America.

Hiram Beltrán-Sánchez, assistant professor of community health sciences in the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, recently received the Early Achievement Award from the Population Association of America.

The award recognizes contributions to population research during an individual’s first 10 years after receiving a doctorate. Contributions may be original research published as articles or books, significant newly collected data or public policy achievement that broadens the impact of demography.

Beltrán-Sánchez, who is part of the California Center for Population Research, was honored for his work in all three areas of the award: his development of theory and research, his leadership in creating the Latin American Mortality Database, and the direct relevance of his research for public policy. His research focuses on the demography of health and aging, with specific regards to health patterns and trends in low- and middle-income countries.
