Fellow Avery wins Teaching Innovation Award
April 11, 2021
Christy Avery, MPH, PhD, won this years’ Gillings School of Global Public Health Teaching Innovation Award. One nominator wrote “Dr. Avery has led a sustained effort to revamp Epidemiologic training to more accurately define and measure race and racism. Although race and racism were not core parts of her scholarship, she sought out opportunities to learn more and encouraged students, faculty, and staff in Epidemiology to join her. She has supported and led training in anti-racist science and is an advocate of improving diversity in science and her field of genetic epidemiology. I have been inspired by her mentorship, teaching, and leadership.” Congratulations to Christy!
