Angela Duckworth and Kevin Mahoney

Congratulations to CHIBE’s Angela Duckworth, PhD, MA, MSc, and Kevin Mahoney, MBA, who were named two of Phillymag’s 76 most influential Philadelphians.

Dr. Duckworth, the Christopher H. Browne Distinguished Professor of Psychology, is a CHIBE-affiliated faculty member, while Mr. Mahoney, University of Pennsylvania Health System CEO, serves on CHIBE’s Internal Advisory Board.

Phillymag praised Dr. Duckworth’s work “unraveling the mystery of human behavior change” and her efforts advocating for equitable resources in public schools.

In addition to the vast number of institutions and individuals under Mr. Mahoney’s purview, the health system CEO told Phillymag he was proud of Penn’s research efforts. “’When you combine research at Penn with research at Children’s Hospital, we rank first in NIH-funded research in the country,’ Mahoney says, with more than $657 million in fiscal 2019,” Phillymag wrote.

The November cover story featured innovators, activists, artists, doctors, and more, including several other individuals from Penn such as University President Amy Gutmann and Vice Provost of global initiatives and Co-Director of the Healthcare Transformation Institute Zeke Emanuel.
