Lowreson receives Promising Student Award

October 2010

Victoria Lowerson, a PhD student in the Department of Planning, Policy and Design, has been selected by UCI's new Institute for Clinical and Translational Science's Community Engagement Unit to receive the Promising Student Award for Commitment to Community Participation in Research. This award was formally bestowed at the Institute's Chancellor's Community Health Workshop and Awards Dinner on October 28, 2010.

The purpose of this award is to encourage and recognize the collaborative efforts between community and researchers and acknowledges Victoria's key role in facilitating community and research collaboration. A flyer is attached to this e-mail, which also provides some idea of the breadth of people and organizations being recognized by the Institute this year.
