Please join us in congratulating Associate Professor Gino Aisenberg, associate dean of the Graduate School and founding co-director of the School’s Latino Center for Health, who is one of 33 faculty to be honored May 2 at the 3rdannual Latinx faculty recognition event. The event highlights the diverse body of work and significant contributions made by UW Latinx faculty.

The 33 honorees come from a broad cross-section of UW departments and schools. Twenty-four are from the Seattle campus, five from UW Bothell and four from UW Tacoma. 

“This celebration makes visible the outstanding achievements, promotion, mentorship and contributions of our Latinx faculty,” said Aisenberg. “Their impact resounds across the UW community, from classrooms and laboratories to diverse communities and fields of practice.”

The Latino Center for Health is an interdisciplinary, community-engaged research center administratively housed in the UW School of Public Health. It provides leadership to promote the well-being of Latinx regionally and nationally with innovative research, mentorship and training opportunities. It is the first research center in Washington state to focus on the health of the Latinx community. 

The celebratory event will be held on Thurs., May 2 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. in the Lyceum, Husky Union Building.
