Stephen Sozio, MD, MPH, Welch Center Associate Faculty member and Assistant Professor in the Division of Nephrology at JHU Bayview Medical Center has received the second annual Lisa Heiser Award for Junior Faculty Contribution in Education. The award was presented by the SOM’s Institute for Excellence in Education (IEE) at the Institute’s Conference and Celebration last Friday, April 5th. The award recognizes an educator who has been on the faculty for no more than five years, and who, the award announcement states, “has made an outstanding contribution in medical/biomedical education, and shown great promise for future meaningful contributions to medical and biomedical education.”
The IEE established the Award “in honor of Lisa J. Heiser, MA, Assistant Dean for Faculty Development and Equity, Johns Hopkins Medicine, 2006-2011. Lisa was the embodiment of what makes Johns Hopkins Medicine special; smart and multitalented, combining fierce tenacity and commitment with tremendous personal warmth, friendliness and collegiality. In the short time that Lisa served as assistant dean, she developed an impressive portfolio of programs and initiatives that have transcended the founding vision of her office, fostering the development of all faculty members.”
Congratulations to Dr. Sozio!
