Schwebke received the ASTDA Achievement Award for her work, which includes several high-impact randomized controlled trials for STD diagnosis and treatment, numerous and authoritative contributions to the understanding of bacterial vaginosis, the most common cause of vaginal discharge, and trichomoniasis, the most common curable sexually transmitted infection.
