The "Sammies" honor members of the federal workforce for their excellence in civil service. Dr. Rana Hajjeh and a team from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were named the Federal Employee of the Year for their work to prevent the spread of the Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) virus worldwide. The initiative is expected to save the lives of an estimated 7 million children by 2020.
