Mar 30, 2010

The Nannerl Keohane Distinguished Visiting Professorship has been awarded to Dr. Christine Bachrach, renowned population researcher and former Chief of the Demographic and Behavioral Sciences Branch at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. The Keohane professorship was established to promote collaboration between UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University by enhancing the intellectual life on both campuses.

Dr. Bachrach will be sponsored by the Carolina Population Center (CPC) at UNC-Chapel Hill and the Duke Population Research Institute (DuPRI) at Duke University. She will facilitate the development of new research collaborations between the population centers and other social science and health students and scholars at the universities. Bachrach has extensive experience in population research and was a pioneer in supporting the integration of social and behavioral science with biomedical science.

In the spring of 2011, Dr. Bachrach will teach an advanced undergraduate course on health disparities, give a distinguished lecture, and coordinate a series of seminars and a mini-conference highlighting scientific approaches and research that integrates biological and social approaches in population research.

The Keohane professorship was established in 2004 by then-UNC Chancellor James Moeser. Read about the work of previous recipients at http://provost.unc.edu/Keohane.
