The Center for Public Health Practice is pleased to announce the 2017 Bernard D. Goldstein Student Award in Environmental Health Disparities and in Public Health Practice recipient, ALIX WARE (HPM '19).
The Bernard D. Goldstein Award was established in 2005 by Bernard Goldstein, then dean of Pitt Public Health and a professor in environmental and occupational health, and his wife, Russellyn Carruth, an adjunct professor in environmental and occupational health. The award was established for students or postdoctoral fellows at Pitt Public Health and is given alternately in one of two areas: environmental health disparities or public health practice. The award is available annually to eligible students through a competitive application process.
Alix Ware, a master of public health student in the Department of Health Policy and Management and a JD student at the School of Law, earned the Bernard D. Goldstein Award for her work with the Emergency Law Inventory (ELI). ELI was created to help individuals navigate through 1,500 law summaries impacting volunteer participation in disaster scenarios. Ware’s work on the development of ELI helped provide emergency volunteers with easy access to the laws most relevant to them, enabling them to be more prepared for their role during an emergency response.
