Dr. Karen Liller earns recognition as Culture Champion

Karen Liller, PhD, CPH, FAAAS, USF Health College of Public Health professor and COPH Activist Lab founder and director, recently earned recognition as Culture Champion for her leadership with the lab.

For her expertise and steadfast leadership, Charles Lockwood, MD, senior vice president for USF Health and dean of the Morsani College of Medicine, presented Dr. Liller with a Culture Coin during the 4th Annual USF Health  Interprofessional Education Day, held Nov. 10.

The purpose of The Activist Lab is to serve as the hub for providing interdisciplinary advocacy, education, research and service opportunities for students to develop the skills that will promote their success as public health advocates and leaders.  The lab provides seminars, webinars and other opportunities for students and faculty to learn public health advocacy skills and competencies.

Dr. Liller recently took on a new leadership role in the USF Center for Justice Research and Policy.  Launched in January, the CJRP  is devoted to the study of social and criminal justice issues around the Tampa Bay region.
