ASPPH Announces 2017 Riegelman Award Winner

The Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health is pleased to announce the recipient of the 2017 Riegelman Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Public Health Education, Dr. Lauren Arnold, director of undergraduate public health programs, Saint Louis University College for Public Health and Social Justice.

This national award is given to one full-time, undergraduate public health faculty member at a university with a CEPH-accredited school or program of public health, who has made outstanding contributions in the following areas: exemplary efforts to start or sustain a new program; innovative teaching techniques using advanced technology; relationships with practice partners in the community; collaboration with other disciplines; and relationships with graduate programs in public health.

Dr. Arnold has been extremely successful in growing the undergraduate programs at Saint Louis University College for Public Health and Social Justice, not only in numbers but in the quality of the programs. One of her nominators wrote “It is with great enthusiasm that I support Dr. Arnold for the Riegelman Award. Dr. Arnold maintains close relationships with department chairs to assure appropriate course coverage and for faculty input on the curriculum, and creates a culture of inclusiveness by more intentionally involving faculty in decisions about undergraduate programs […] She is extremely devoted to undergraduate public health education and our students and their success.”

Dr. Arnold will be recognized at the luncheon during the Undergraduate Public Health and Global Health Education Summit on Wednesday, March 15.
