Andy Gravatt and Russ Mattern — Professors at National Defense University's iCollege
Heidi King — Director of the Patient Safety Solutions for Tricare Management, Defense Department
Heidi King has saved thousands of lives, says her boss at DoD. But she isn't a doctor or a police officer or a firefighter. King, along with Dr. James Battles at the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, has revolutionized the way the medical personnel behave in hospitals. Together they started TeamSTEPPS, a program that seeks to end medical errors like prescription mistakes, hospital-inquired infections and surgical missteps. And now both of them are finalists for the Service to America Medals or Sammies.
Dr. Kevin M. Crofton — Acting Deputy Director, National Center for Computational Toxicology, Environmental Protection Agency
Traditional chemical toxicity testing is expensive, time-consuming and carried out using a significant number of animals as test subjects. EPA is researching new, more efficient, ways to manage the safety of chemicals, particularly in assessing the potential risk to human health and the environment. The National Center for Computational Toxicology — or CompTox — conducts innovative research that integrates advances in molecular biology, chemistry and computer science to rank chemicals based on risk more effectively and efficiently.
