Dr. Doris Rubio Earns the 2021 Chancellor’s Distinguished Public Service Award

Doris Rubio, PhD, Director of the Institute for Clinical Research Education and Division of General Internal Medicine faculty, is a recipient of the 2021 Chancellor’s Distinguished Public Service Award for championing workplace diversity and supporting junior faculty. The annual Chancellor’s Distinguished Awards to faculty for teaching, research and public service were announced last week. The Chancellor’s Distinguished Public Service Award underscores the high priority that the University of Pittsburgh places on utilizing its faculty’s expertise to address social problems through public service, the chancellor’s letter said. “Each of the awardees’ efforts stand as an inspiring example of contributions that far exceed the traditional duties expected of a faculty member,” said Chancellor Gallagher.

Dr. Rubio, a professor of medicine, biomedical informatics, biostatistics, nursing, and clinical and translational science, was recognized for her efforts to diversify the workforce and support junior investigators. These efforts include launching and overseeing the Career Education and Enhancement for Health Care Diversity (CEED) program, partnering with 20 institutions to reach a broad group of minority faculty through the Leading Emerging and Diverse Scholars to Success (LEADS) Program, and developing an alumni network and a newsletter for former LEADS participants. CEED and LEADS are both programs in the ICRE.

Congratulations to Dr. Rubio and all recipients of the 2021 Chancellor’s Distinguished Awards. Learn more about these awards and this year’s recipients here.
