Faculty Spotlight

Dr. Angela Doehring received the 2019-20 Faculty Excellence Award for Service from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

“I truly enjoy the applied nature of service and encourage that for my students as well. Whether it is advocating at the grassroots level on behalf of a specific disease or volunteering one’s time toward a specific initiative/ organization, service is a great way to give back. I believe that encouraging my students to commit to various levels of service throughout their collegiate careers, not only enhances their work but mine as well.” Doehring stated.

She went on to say, “My service to the community continues to thrive with my work with the American Heart Association and Alzheimer’s Association, connecting my passion and research interests in chronic disease and quality of life among older adults. I encourage grassroots advocacy of a topic that is personal to each student, as a great starting point. This could open further networking and various opportunities in the future within our field for students.”

Congratulations to Dr. Doehring on this wonderful accomplishment.
