Dr. Shrier was finalist for the Society for Adolescent Medicine's New Investigator Award in 2000 and 2001. She is the 2004 recipient of the Harvard Medical School 50th Anniversary Program for Scholars in Medicine Priscilla and Richard Hunt Fellowship.
Dr. Shrier and her collaborators created the Safer Sex Intervention, a theory-based individualized intervention to reduce sexual risk behaviors in high-risk adolescent girls. The Safer Sex Intervention is featured in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Compendium of Evidence-Based HIV Prevention Interventions and was selected for replication funding as part of a $75M opportunity through the Office of Adolescent Health, Department of Health and Human Services. Currently, multiple sites across the U.S. are conducting replications of the Safer Sex Intervention.
