Congratulations to Maricruz Rivera-Hernandez, PhD, Assistant Professor, here at the Center for Gerontology & Health Care Research.  Dr. Rivera-Hernandez was awarded the Early Stages Disparities Investigator Award at the 2020 Academy Health Virtual Meeting.  A quote from Dr. Maricruz, "Current events have highlighted issues with systemic inequality and structural racism in the United States, and we should all reflect and use this moment to encourage diversity and inclusion within our institutions and organizations...It is our responsibility to take accountability - we play a role in addressing these issues at our institutions, organizations and our communities with the general public."
