|This annual award is given in memory of G. Scott Giebink, MD (1944-2003). Along with his work as an internationally respected expert in middle ear disease and immunization, Dr. Giebink was also a leader in the creation of MinnesotaCare, a state health-insurance program for the underprivileged. Dr. Giebink was a great advocate of immunization and strongly believed in access to health care for all children. The G. Scott Giebink Excellence in Immunization Award will be given to a clinic or organization that has displayed leadership or innovative work in the area of immunization.|
