Recognition for Dartmouth faculty, staff, and students

Nova Robinson '08, of Bethel, Vt., was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship and Critical Language Enhancement Award which she will use to spend six months studying Arabic in Amman, Jordan. She will then go on to Manama, Bahrain, to research how Bahraini women learn about their political rights. She plans to pursue an advanced degree in women's history. Robinson graduated from Dartmouth as a history major. Her honors thesis was on "Rapprochement, Research and Reflections: Ruth Frances Woodsmall's Work with Middle Eastern Women."

Article cover
Dartmouth Medicine magazine recently received a 2008 Will Solimene Award for Excellence in Medical Communication from the New England Chapter of the American Medical Writers Association. The award recognizes outstanding work in medical, biomedical, and health communication, based on accuracy, quality, originality, and overall impact. It was given for a feature titled, "The Other Side of the Stethoscope," by freelance writer Paula Hartman Cohen and edited by Dana Cook Grossman, editor of Dartmouth Medicine. The article told the stories of six alumni and faculty who have faced serious illness or injury: Cathy Conry-Cantilena, DMS '86; James Bell, DMS cardiologist;  Wendy Osterling, '95, DMS '04; Michael Mayor, DMS orthopaedist; Andrew Place, DMS '04 and '06; and Robert "S.B." Lee, DMS '01. The piece explored how those experiences affected their decisions to go into medicine and the way they practice. 

Paula Schnurr, research professor of psychiatry at Dartmouth Medical School and the deputy executive director of the National Center for PTSD for the Department of Veterans Affairs in White River Junction, Vt., has won a Ladies' Home Journal Health Breakthrough Award for landmark work that benefits women and families. Schnurr was chosen for her studies of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in female veterans. She is featured in the magazine's August issue.
