Health Educator Heroes

We are announcing an additional recognition for the Annual Academy of Health Sciences Educators awards.  We are aware that many Health Sciences Faculty have contributed to adapting and advancing health science education and clinical service activities involving students/learners in response to  the pandemic. We invite you to send us names of Health Science Faculty who have made such a contribution with ONE sentence describing their activities.  The educational effort must be COVID-19 specific, and could include incorporation of content into coursework, clinical education, teaching modified practices, etc.

We will post the names of the faculty as Health Educator Heroes on the AHSE website. We encourage self and peer nomination of faculty. There is no limit to the number of recognitions—we know that many of our faculty are Health Educator Heroes.

The deadline to be listed as a Health Educator Hero is November 11, 2020

Please send names and one sentence description to sara.rose@hsc.utah.edu
