International Health Announces New Thesis Publication Awards  

The Department of International is pleased to announce the new recipients of the Thesis Research Publication Award of the Department of International Health, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Established in January 2017, the award honors doctoral students and alumni who publish two manuscripts in the scholarly literature based on their doctoral thesis. "The awards recognize the high-quality research conducted by our doctoral students and the leadership skills they develop while conceptualizing, designing, and managing global health studies," says Professor Joanne Katz, associate chair for academic programs of the Department of International Health. The manuscripts must be published within 2 years from the date of the student’s graduation from an International Health doctoral program. Advisers can nominate their students or graduates can nominate themselves by sending an email to Audrey Lindahl with the name of the graduate and the citations of the doctoral thesis peer-reviewed publications.
