The Lee Kum Sheung Center for Health and Happiness is pleased to announce that three Harvard doctoral students have been awarded the Dissertation Research Award for the 2019-2020 academic year.
The Dissertation Research Award Program was established to assist full-time doctoral students of public health who are conducting dissertation research in the field of positive health science or another closely related field with research related costs. Through this program, the Center seeks to involve students in its work to build a rigorous science of positive health and well-being, and to translate science into practice and policy.
