The award was given for Dr. Barker's article "Stigmatized Biologies: Examining the Cumulative Effects of Oral Health Disparities for Mexican American Farmworker Children", and was announced at the SMA public meeting on Friday, November 19, in Montreal. The article by Barker and Horton examines the way that the early childhood caries (ECC) of Mexican American farmworker children in the United States sets them up for lasting dental problems and social stigma as young adults.
