Join us during University Research Week as we honor Carmen Samuel-Hodge, RD, PhD, the inaugural winner of the Gillings Health Equity Faculty Research Award.

Samuel-Hodge will receive her award and give a presentation, followed by presentations from Lauren Brinkley-Rubinstein, PhD, CHER core faculty and assistant professor of Social Medicine and Shauna Cooper, PhD, of the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience.
