This award was established in honor of the late Margaret Fitzgerald Gloninger (MSHyg ’66), Pitt Public Health graduate and former faculty member in maternal and child health.
  • Early Career Excellence Award - presented to an alumnus/na who has made significant achievements early in his or her career.
