Cannon/Ingraham/Maxwell

Three UNCG faculty (Dr. Rob Cannon, Dr. Jeremy Ingraham and Robin Maxwell) represented UNCG at the annual meeting of the National Association of Advisors for the Health Professions in Washington, DC, from June 27 to July 1.

At the meeting, Dr. Rob Cannon (Biology, emeritus) was recognized for his long-term commitment to the organization as the recipient of the Carol Baffi-Dugan Award for Service: “The Carol Baffi-Dugan Award for Service is a leadership award presented at each NAAHP National Meeting. The award’s namesake is a long-term NAAHP leader who, through her selfless commitment to both her Regional Association an NAAHP, has set an example of dedicated service for all to follow.”

Robin Maxwell (Biology) was elected as a member-at-large of the Executive Council of the SAAHP (Southern Association of Advisors for the Health Professions) for the next three years. This is one of four regional organizations, and includes advisors from the region from Texas to West Virginia to Florida. She also was selected as a member of the NAAHP national organization’s Committee on Diversity and Inclusion.

Their leadership at the regional and national level reflects the value UNCG, as an institution, places on advising students striving to prepare competitive applications for health related professional schools.
