Congratulations to Dr. S. Larry Goldenberg on winning the American Urological Society's 2017 Hugh Hampton Young Award.  He received this for outstanding contributions in the study and treatment of prostatic diseases, and spearheading the development and implementation of a national men's health program.  The Hugh Hampton Young Award has been presented annually since 1969 to an individual for outstanding contributions to the study of genitourinary tract disease.

Dr. Goldenberg was also one of only four Data Grant recipients, for his proposal to analyze health outcomes of men on Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). This project was formed after a surge in off-label TRT prescriptions resulted in several highly debated consequences. Dr. Goldenberg aims to determine appropriate prescribing and monitoring patterns of men on TRT, the biochemical impact of TRT treatment on the actual measured testosterone level, as well as safety concerns surrounding TRT and cardiovascular and thromboembolic events.

The AUA Data Grants fund research proposals that address key knowledge gaps and emerging research questions related to urological care, workforce development and health policy. The grants promote novel and methodologically rigorous analyses that inform policymakers, payers, the urology community, other healthcare providers and the public about key issues in urological care. They focus population-based, data-driven, specialty generalizable studies using electronic health records, data maintained by the AUA (including population-based survey data, administrative and claims data, and the certification/licensing files) or other data sources already available to investigators.
