The Center for Medical Education Research and Scholarly Innovation and the Academy for Excellence in Education are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2021 Fellowship for Scholarly Innovation in Medical/Biomedical Sciences Education award. Each team will work with faculty mentors over the coming year to develop, implement and evaluate the impact of novel learning activities for clerkship and post-clerkship medical students.

The project team of Amy Wrentmore, MD (Department of Pediatrics); Deborah Barry, PhD (Office of Medical Education), Joann McDermid, RDN, PhD (Department of Medicine); and Melanie Brede, MS, RDN (UVA Student Health Teaching Kitchen Coordinator) will enhance medical student well-being and advance ​students’ knowledge and skills related to nutritional counseling for patients through their project entitled “Culinary Medicine: Taking Care of Ourselves and Others with Food.”
