ABSTRACT
This article presents a brief profile of William Yarber, Dennis Sugrue and David Satcher, who were recognized for the contributions to the field of sexuality at the recent conference of the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT), in Chicago, Illinois. Yarber, a professor of applied health science and gender studies at Indiana University and a senior research fellow at the Kinsey Institute, has fought the many battles with a persistent conviction that sexual education and research are societal goods. He is the co-author of '"Human Sexuality: Diversity in Contemporary America," one of the most widely used college human sexuality textbooks. Sugrue accepted the 2004 AASECT Distinguished Service Award in Chicago with time on his mind. First, he wanted to make it clear that, despite his delight with receiving the recognition of his peers, it was the countless hours of others who have made his good work with AASECT possible. Throughout his career, Satcher has occupied some of the most visible and political roles in public health in the nation. He served as director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and as Assistant Secretary for Health from 1998 to early 2001. the latter of which he held while simultaneously serving as Surgeon General under successive U.S. presidents, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
