A July 17, 2007 piece notes ACSH Trustee Dr. Norman Borlaug receiving the Congressional Gold Medal (to add to his Presidential Medal of Freedom, Nobel Peace Prize, and numerous other accolades):
Besides being a member of the National Academy of Sciences, Borlaug is also a founding director of the American Council on Science and Health, an organization that works to provide scientifically valid information to the media and consumers.
"Norman Borlaug is one of the great Americans of the past century,” said ACSH president Elizabeth Whelan, one of many attending the award ceremony. “It is entirely appropriate that this honor be given to a man who, through his tireless work, has given so much both to Americans and to people around the world. I cannot imagine anyone more deserving."
