Kirsten Davison Delivers Alice Hamilton Award Lecture

Dr. Kirsten Davison, the Donald and Sue Pritzker Associate Professor of Nutrition, has received the 7th Annual Alice Hamilton Award from the Committee on the Advancement of Women Faculty (CAWF).

The Alice Hamilton Award recognizes the impact in public health and the future promise of a woman faculty member, honoring the memory of Alice Hamilton–a pioneer in the fields of toxicology and occupational health who was the first woman appointed to the faculty at Harvard.

On March 10, 2017, Dr. Davison delivered the 2017 Alice Hamilton Award Lecture, “Serving Underserved Children: Scalable Solutions to Prevent Obesity and Promote Emotional Wellbeing in Families.”

During the event, the CAWF also recognized Lisa Berkman, Thomas D. Cabot Professor of Public Policy, Epidemiology, and Global Health and Population, and director of the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies, with its annual Mentoring Award.
