One of Dalhousie’s top academics has been awarded the prestigious designation of University Research Professor.
Each year, up to three Dal professors are awarded the title in recognition of the significant contributions they have made to research and scholarship throughout their careers. With only 15 faculty members holding this title at any given time, it is an acknowledgement of their research productivity and impact.
This year’s recipient, Lois Jackson, a professor in Dal’s Faculty of Health, has devoted her career to the improvement of health among marginalized populations including women involved in the sex industry, people who use substances, and youth (particularly young women) living in rural places.
