Congratulations to CHIBE-affiliated faculty member Carmen Guerra, MD, MSCE, FACP, on winning Penn’s Women in Medicine Award, which celebrates the commitment and contributions to advancing the education and careers of women in academic medicine by an alumna, faculty, or staff member.
This award was the brainchild of Elizabeth Kirk Rose, M’26, INT’30, who started celebrations of Penn’s female students and alumnae in 1962.
“More recently, the celebration has been an awards luncheon sponsored by the Elizabeth Blackwell Society and Penn Medicine Development and Alumni Relations for students, faculty, and alumni. This year will mark a new milestone: the first virtual celebration of this award,” according to the Perelman School of Medicine Alumni site.
Dr. Guerra shares the Elizabeth Kirk Rose, M’26, INT’30 Women in Medicine Award with Marie A. Bernard, MD, and Dana Beyer, MD. The three women will be celebrated virtually on February 4, 2021. Read more about this recognition on the PSOM alumni site.
Dr. Guerra is the Ruth C. and Raymond G. Perelman Associate Professor of Medicine, the Vice Chair of Diversity and Inclusion in the Department of Medicine, and Associate Director of Diversity and Outreach at the Abramson Cancer Center.
