Election to the Institute of Medicine, National Academy of Sciences

I am thrilled that the Institute of Medicine has elected me as one of the 70 new members this year!  Election to the IOM is considered one of the highest honors in the fields of public health and medicine and recognizes individuals who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement and commitment to service. It's particularly special that I was elected along with my academic advisor during my public health training at the University of Michigan, Dr. Arline Geronimus. The Johns Hopkins Office of Communications has issued a press release highlighting this career achievement.
