2020 Dissertation Research Award Winners

The Lee Kum Sheung Center for Health and Happiness is pleased to announce that two Harvard doctoral students have been awarded the  Dissertation Research Award for the 2020-2021 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.
