Health Sciences Author Recognition Awards

The Health Sciences Author Recognition Awards honors both ECU faculty and staff for their published research and scholarly contributions to their area of study.

The awards program was created in 2005 to pay tribute to our many health sciences authors who have expanded and enriched the scholarly culture of our university and the reputation of ECU Health Sciences through publication of peer-reviewed works. We are pleased to host this event to celebrate academic achievement.

The 2024 awards ceremony will recognize authors of publications from July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2024 (2 years of publications). Laupus Health Sciences Library and the Friends of Laupus Library are making arrangements for a face-to-face awards ceremony to be held in November. More information will be shared as arrangements are finalized.

So rarely are faculty members publicly recognized for their written scholarly endeavors. I encourage everyone to participate in this program.
