Donna Spiegelman to Receive CAWF Mentoring Award

The Committee on the Advancement of Women Faculty (CAWF) is pleased to announce that Donna Spiegelman will receive the 2018 CAWF Mentoring Award. Dr. Spiegelman is Professor of Epidemiologic Methods in the departments of Epidemiology, Biostatistics, Nutrition, and Global Health and Population.

The CAWF Mentoring Award celebrates the essential role of mentors in the success of our faculty members and growth of our community.

Adept at acknowledging the unique expertise everyone brings to the table—and ensuring that everyone is sitting at the table—Professor Spiegelman provides her mentees with evidence-based recommendations, drawing from her rich experience publishing papers and fostering collaborations. Characterized by her mentees as an empathetic listener, she asks questions and shows genuine interest in their answers. She advocates on behalf of her mentees for the recognition they deserve and models self-advocacy.

The CAWF Mentoring award will be presented on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, in Kresge Cafeteria, during the Alice Hamilton Award Ceremony (2:30 – 4:15 PM). A reception in the Rosenau Atrium will follow the ceremony.
