Dr. Janice Graham, an anthropologist based in the Department of Pediatrics who is cross-appointed to SOSA, was named as a University Research Professor at the Dalhousie Legacy Awards Gala on June 20. The title is granted to a limited number of individual Dalhousie faculty members who have achieved distinction in scholarship. Dr. Graham studies the cultural, technical and moral tensions that arise in the regulation of health, and particularly in the global landscape of emerging pharmaceuticals and vaccines. Her other distinctions include the Canadian Anthropology Society's Weaver-Tremblay Award, which she received for her outstanding contributions to Canadian anthropology in 2016 when CASCA held its annual conference at Dalhousie University.
