The Amy Roberts Health Promotion Research Award was established to assist the research activities of young investigators who are affiliated with the Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI) or sponsored by an MWRI member, and are studying health promotion and wellbeing. The research can include, but is not limited to, projects addressing exercise, nutrition, smoking cessation, and obesity reduction. The award will be used for research by young investigators including a summer research project.
Eligible candidates must be at the beginning of their careers (high school through faculty appointment of three years or less), affiliated with the Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI) OR sponsored by a MWRI member, and studying health promotion and wellbeing. If an applicant does not have a sponsor, he/she should contact Ms. Katherine (Kat) Bakrania at firstname.lastname@example.org. Dr. Jim Roberts will identify an appropriate sponsor and coordinate introductions. MWRI investigators are encouraged to sponsor a high school, college, medical or graduate student or other trainee such as a resident or fellow.
