MHD Lab receives MCW President's Community Engagement Award
The Milwaukee Health Department (MHD) Laboratory was honored with the Community Partner Award as part of the 2017 Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) President's Community Engagement Award reception. As one of six award recipients, MHDL was recognized for its instrumental role in developing a new community resource for soil analysis for urban gardening, under the MCW-led Growing Healthy Soil for Healthy Communities grant partnership. For more details on MHDL's role in the project, check out this video.
The President’s Community Engagement Award is intended to recognize the exemplary community-academic partnership, community engaged research, or community outreach activities of faculty, staff, students and community partners. Awardees receive a plaque to recognize their efforts and a $2,000 honorarium. More information on the award and fellow recipients is available on the MCW website.
