|September 19, 2011|
Eugenia (Geni) Eng, DrPH, professor of health behavior and health education at UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, has received the 2011 Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH)/Pfizer Faculty Award for Excellence in Academic Public Health Practice. The award recognizes faculty members from accredited ASPH-member schools whose careers have advanced and integrated scholarly public health practice through research, teaching and service.
"We are thrilled that Dr. Eng is being recognized for her outstanding work in the public health practice field," said Anna Maria Siega-Riz, PhD, professor of epidemiology and nutrition at UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health and associate dean for academic affairs at the School. "Geni is an inspiration to our faculty and students."
Eng's current research projects apply community-based research principles to the design and evaluation of lay health adviser interventions and examine the influence of sociocultural factors on sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and early detection of breast cancer. She has been a UNC public health faculty member since 1984.
Eng will accept the award at an ASPH reception and awards ceremony on Oct. 29.
