March 1 — Nursing faculty, postdoctoral scholar awarded ‘Paper of the Year’
A paper written by Katherine Kim, an associate professor with the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis, and Victoria Ngo, a Class of 2019 alumna of the school’s doctoral program and now a postdoctoral scholar at the school, was named the Sarah Mazelis 2020 Paper of the Year by the Society for Public Health Education (SOPHE). The article, “Native American Youth Citizen Scientists Uncovering Community Health and Food Security Priorities,” was published in the January 2020 issue of Health Promotion Practice. The article showcased a project led by Katherine with youth from the Karuk Tribe in rural Northern California. Katherine trained the Karuk youth to serve as researchers in their community. Together, they developed a survey and used mobile devices to interview community members about access to fruits and vegetables in their isolated community. Through their research, the youth discovered the need to develop community gardens. As a result, gardens were developed at two elementary schools, a senior center and a community center. Additionally, the tribe convened workshops to help youth and their families improve food production and processing. The award will be presented at the SOPHE 2021 digital awards ceremony April 8.
