Assistant Professor and Director of the Master of Science in Epidemiology and Certificate in Psychiatric Epidemiology Programs Catherine Striley, PhD, MSW, MPE will be inducted as a Faculty Member in the Edward Alexander Bouchet Graduate Honor Society at the Annual Yale Bouchet Conference on Diversity and Graduate Education at Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, on April 7th. Named after Dr. Edward A. Bouchet, the first African American to receive a PhD in any discipline and the 6th person in the Western Hemisphere to be awarded the PhD in physics, chapters of the Society “seek to develop a network of preeminent scholars who exemplify academic and personal excellence, foster environments of support, and serve as examples of scholarship, leadership, character, service and advocacy for students who have been traditionally underrepresented in the academy.” The University of Florida chapter of the Bouchet Society joined 13 other Universities with chapters in 2016. Congratulations, Dr. Striley!
