Center for Family Research awarded the Presidents’ Award of Distinction for Team Science from Georgia CTSA

We are bursting with pride for our own Center for Family Research, which has been awarded the inaugural Presidents’ Award of Distinction for Team Science from the Georgia CTSA! This honor is bestowed upon a multi-disciplinary research team in recognition of it’s innovative, high-functioning teamwork and synergy. Teams competed across Georgia CTSA institutions (UGA, Emory, Georgia Tech, and Morehouse School of Medicine) and only one winner emerged – OIBR’s own Center for Family Research.

Since 1985, CFR has made great progress in improving the health of rural African American families by bringing together scholars from diverse disciplines to explore innovative and dynamic ways of examining family life. They will be recognized at the Georgia CTSA Statewide Conference at the end of the February.

Please join us in a huge congratulations to Directors Gene Brody and Steve Beach, as well as all the faculty who affiliate with CFR, the outstanding staff, and many collaborators outside UGA.
