Prior to assuming my current positions, I served in a variety of capacities at both the UAB Schools of Public Health and Medicine and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Schools of Medicine and Public Health. In 1994, I was honored by the International Health Section of the American Public Health Association with its Distinguished Service Award and, in 2011, by the International Services Council of Alabama by being named to its Model Citizen Diplomatic Corps.
