UNC Assistant Professor Honored with Minority Leadership Development Program Award

Dr. Wizdom Powell Hammond, assistant professor of health behavior at the University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health, has been selected as a Kaiser Permanente Burch Minority Leadership Development Program awardee. The program, piloted in 2010, aims to enhance leadership development of junior minority researchers committed to improving service to the underserved and reducing health and health-care inequities. The Institute for Alternative Futures, on behalf of Kaiser Permanente, selected Dr. Powell Hammond, along with Gillings School alumna Dr. Chandra L. Ford, now assistant professor of community health sciences in UC-Los Angeles’ Fielding School of Public Health, for two years of leadership support (2014-2016).
