Stephanie Shiau, PhD, MPH, an assistant professor in the Rutgers School of Public Health’s Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology, received the 2022 Abraham Lilienfeld Award from the American Public Health Association Epidemiology Section. The award, which recognizes excellence in the teaching of epidemiology, was presented to Shiau at the organization’s annual meeting in Boston.
“I am excited to have my teaching recognized by the American Public Health Association,” says Shiau. “My goal is for my students to connect the epidemiology theories we learn in the classroom to real-world scenarios.”
In addition to her work in the classroom, Shiau also co-chairs the Rutgers School of Public Health’s curriculum committee. Under her leadership, the committee recently undertook a diversity, equity, and inclusion review of the school’s course syllabi.
