Welch Center Core Faculty member Mary Catherine Beach, MD, MPH, was presented with the Jozien Bensing Award by the European Association of Communications in Healthcare (EACH). The award is only granted to a single recipient once every two years. The award is intended for talented researchers in the first ten years of their research career.
Dr. Beach's certificate states that she was singled out for "outstanding research contributing to effective healthcare communication." Besides the certificate, the award brings a cash prize and a commemorative sculpture. The photo shows Dr. Beach being presented with the Jozien Bensing Award at the EACH conference in Verona, Italy, earlier this month.
Congratulations, Dr. Beach!
