2018 Warren J. Mitofsky Award for Excellence in Public Opinion Research recipient announced!
The Board of Directors of the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research is pleased to announce that Mollyann Brodie, Senior Vice President for Executive Operations and Executive Director, Public Opinion and Survey Research, at the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF), is the recipient of the 2018 Warren J. Mitofsky Award for Excellence in Public Opinion Research. (See the full award announcement here.)
This award recognizes Brodie’s many outstanding contributions to public opinion research, including major advancements in our understanding of health policy as director of KFF’s survey and polling research program. This is the largest and most important source of data on Americans’ health policy preferences, priorities, and experiences. It has been archived at the Roper Center and is available for secondary analysis by other researchers.
The annual Mitofsky Award event is the primary fundraising activity hosted by the Roper Center Board of Directors. Funds raised are allocated specifically to support the enrichment of the archive and the cultivation of diversity and scholarship within the field of public opinion polling.
Funds raised at recent Mitofsky Award Dinners have supported graduate students as well as the (new in 2017) Andrew Kohut Fellowship and the expansion of the Latin American Data Bank. Please consider supporting young scholars and our commitment to diversity by attending the event or becoming an event sponsor.
The award itself honors the life and work of the late Warren J. Mitofsky – an innovator in survey research and longtime chair of the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research Board of Directors.
