Three researchers – Rose Hardy, Shivani Murthy and Karmen Williams – were named 2015 “Dr. Rick Brown Scholars” during the Keeneland Conference on Public Health Services and Systems Research (PHSSR) this week. Awardees were selected based on the significance and innovation of their PHSSR research interests and their potential as emerging scientific leaders in the field.
The Dr. Rick Brown Keeneland Conference Scholarships, named in honor of late UCLA Center for Health Policy Researcher founder, E. Richard “Rick” Brown, are open to predoctoral and early-career postdoctoral researchers from racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups who are underrepresented in the health and social sciences. The scholarships are funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Congratulations to Rose, Shivani and Karmen.
