DeLancey named UW Centennial Scholar

February 2010

Dayle B. DeLancey has been named as one of the first two Centennial Scholars at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. The Centennial Scholars Program was created to develop faculty whose diversity enhances the quality of education and research at the school, according to Patricia Kokotailo, MD, MPH, associate dean for faculty development and faculty affairs at the School of Medicine and Public Health. “These two individuals, who are clearly committed to careers in academic medicine, will serve as visible and available role models for students and trainees, especially those from under-represented minority backgrounds,” says Kokotailo.
