John Carvalho Calls For World Peace On Acceptance Of Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award



Dr. John Carvalho, calling for world peace in troubled times, has received the 2017 Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award for 25 years of scholarship in the sciences and humanities.

Los Angeles, California (April 15, 2018): The Marquis Who’s Who Editorial Board has bestowed the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award on former Harvard University scholar Dr. John Carvalho of Los Angeles, California. Carvalho’s twenty-five years of work in the sciences and humanities, his contributions to public policy and civil rights legislation, and the publication of his recent Pulitzer-Prize submitted memoir “The Crisis of Our Time” were among the reasons for the committee’s decision. The committee also cited Carvalho’s long-time listings in all of the Marquis press including Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, Who’s Who in Medicine and Healthcare, and Who’s Who in Emerging Leaders (where he was recognized back in 2005).

Dr. John Carvalho, who has spent his career addressing world problems and the underpinnings of human nature, has decided to use his award acceptance to illuminate the difficulties of present, international affairs and to call for world peace in troubled times.

“The year 2016 was an earthquake year with the U.S. presidential election, the rise of populism in Europe, and the wars in the Middle East,” states Carvalho. “With the advent of 2018, it is clear to me that America and the world are at a dangerous crossroads. Upon acceptance of the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award, I want to use this moment to once again call on societies everywhere to reject fascism in all its forms, relinquish hatred toward different cultures, refuse “alternative facts” that stimulate confusion, and to castoff pessimism that unmistakably discourages hope of improving civilization and establishing world peace. The Albert Nelson Marquis Award today reminds us that only by promoting education, furthering human rights, and working as a collective can we truly overcome the struggles that our earth presently faces.”

Dr. John Carvalho’s statements echo the themes he promoted in his memoir “The Crisis Of Our Time” (AuthorHouse 2014), where he tackles key issues presently plaguing America and the world: global health disparities, spread of infectious diseases, uncontrolled planetary climate change, ecological destruction, economic recessions, and income inequality. A former United States National Research Service Award winner and a well-published philosopher, Carvalho has recently taken his message to the general public with a Barnes & Noble book tour, whereby he challenged his audiences to not glorify mediocrity but rather strive to excel in their daily lives.

“The Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award is a symbol of a laudable career whereby one has spent much time contributing to the buildup of society rather than its demise,” says Carvalho. “When we fail to achieve, fail to perform any civic engagement, and fail to keep ourselves informed, we become the artisans of further chaos and hardship rather than a solution to world problems. Our present state of affairs calls on each one of us to do much more, and there is no reason why we cannot. We just need the will to courageously engage the difficulties that we face as a nation and as a planet.”

Dr. John Carvalho holds a postdoctoral fellowship in Virology from Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts; a Ph.D. in Biology & Biomedicine from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis; and a B.Sc. in Biology from University of Dallas in Irving, Texas. Throughout the years he has acted as a member of numerous scholarly and professional societies, professor and lecturer at various academic institutions, researcher, philosopher, author, political statesman and human rights activist. Carvalho is also an advocate for the Hollywood arts and entertainment industry, and his previous works have earned him a Pulitzer Prize submission, an AIMA Best Literary Writer Nomination, a Barnes & Noble book tour, numerous features in The Author’s Digest, a front page interview in The National Monitor, and attention from both local and national media.

The Marquis Who’s Who has been chronicling the lives of prominent Americans worldwide since 1898. Among the other Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award winners are actress Linda Carter, former Secretary of State Colin Powell, Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
