The 2018 Sammies, as the Medals are affectionately called, honor federal employees who have made important contributions to the health, safety and prosperity of people in the U.S. and around the world. These are amazing individuals who are identifying a new class of rare genetic diseases and finding treatments to alleviate the suffering of thousands of patients. These are feds who are collecting and analyzing critical data on the mosquito-borne Zika virus to help and protect women and babies in the U.S. and its territories. These are people doing pioneering research to understand the prevalence of developmental disabilities, which has influenced the expansion of services for children with autism and other conditions. The list of remarkable federal employees doing groundbreaking work goes on and on!
