Clintons to get public health awards from Harvard

BOSTON (AP) -- Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea Clinton are being honored during the Harvard School of Public Health's centennial celebration.

At Thursday's ceremony in Boston, the former president will receive a Centennial Medal along with two world health leaders. Also being honored are Dr. Jim Yong Kim, president of the World Bank Group and co-founder of Partners in Health, and Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, former prime minister of Norway and director-general of the World Health Organization.

Chelsea Clinton will receive the Next Generation Award.

The Centennial Medals honor people whose leadership has had a significant global impact, improving the health and well-being of people around the world.

The Next Generation Award honors someone under 40 whose commitment to health inspires young people to make "health for all" a global priority.
