Dabney P. Evans receives 2017 Mid-Career Award in International Health

Dabney P. Evans, PhD, MPH, assistant professor of global health at the Emory Rollins School of Public Health, has been selected as the recipient of the American Public Health Association (APHA)’s 2017 Mid-Career Award in International Health.

Evans was nominated by Carlos del Rio, MD. Hubert Professor and chair of the Hubert Department of Global Health.

“Dabney is an outstanding professor, innovative researcher and passionate public health advocate,” says del Rio. “This award speaks to her vast contributions to the field of health and human rights, as well as to Emory University. The recognition is greatly deserved.”

The award is presented annually to “an outstanding emerging professional” from APHA’s International Health Section.

“Receiving this award is particularly meaningful at this point in my career,” says Evans, who recently celebrated 20 years working in global health. “Since the APHA annual meeting is in Atlanta this year, I will get to enjoy receiving the award in my home town, the ‘public health capital of the world.'”

Evans is globally recognized for her research, writing and lectures on health and human rights. Among the first to introduce health and human rights into the U.S. public health curriculum, Evans’ teaching and training activities have directly reached more than 19,000 people from 171 countries. She is director of the Emory Center for Humanitarian Emergencies and executive director of the Emory Institute of Human Rights. In addition, she is currently serving as interim director of the Institute for Developing Nations.

Evans will receive her award during the APHA 2017 Annual Meeting & Expo, held Nov. 4-8 at the Georgia World Congress Center.
