Congratulations, HSEED Student Award Winners!

Congratulations, HSEED Student Award Winners!

In 2016, the Department of Health Services established the Health Services Excellence, Equity, and Distinction (HSEED) Award in an effort to increase the number of health professionals from diverse communities in the field of public health. The $5,000 HSEED Award is presented annually to a student in each of our eight degree programs (bachelor's, master's and doctoral). Recipients are honored for their outstanding academic merit, diversity of experiences and backgrounds, and potential for leadership in public health.

Congratulations to our 2016-2017 award recipients:
