Mike Mann, an associate professor in the Department of Community and Environmental Health, was awarded the 2019 American School Health Association Outstanding School Health Researcher Award. The award recognizes researchers who have demonstrated sustained and outstanding contributions to school health research, and it prioritizes researchers who have helped translate research into practice to make a difference at schools and in the lives of students.
Mann’s award comes on the heels of another recent accolade: co-authoring an article that was recently published in the Health Promotion Practice journal. The article, titled “Addressing Challenges to the Reliable, Large-Scale Implementation of Effective School Health Education,” is part of a series completed with the Society of Public Health Education’s National Committee on the Future of School Health Education. It is sponsored by the Division of Adolescence and School Health within Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
