SUNY Albany Faculty 2015 Asian & Pacific Islander Caucus for Public Health’s Best Published Paper Award

A recently published first authored paper by Feng (Johnson) Qian, assistant professor of health policy and management at the University at Albany School of Public Health, won the 2015 Asian & Pacific Islander Caucus for Public Health’s Best Published Paper Award.
