Caregivers at Carolina Program Announces Travel Awards

The Caregivers at Carolina program awards eight travel grants to physician scientists in recognition of their exemplary research while facing substantial caregiving demands at home.

Caregivers at Carolina was launched in early 2016 with funding support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. The program's mission is to help early-career physician-scientists continue their patient-centered research amid extraprofessional caregiving demands. 

The grant's co-principle investigators are Susan Girdler, PhD, and Amelia Drake, MD.

Earlier this year, the program announced its first two scholar awardees Leeza Park, MD and Sylvia Becker-Dreps, MD, MPH.

The travel award funding is drawn from the same Doris Duke Charitable Foundation funding as the scholar awards and is meant to recognize the work of additional physician scientists.

The recipients are:   


Natalie Bowman, MD, MPH, Department of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases


Crystal Wiley Cené, MD, MPH, Department of Medicine, Division of General Medicine & Clinical Epidemiology


R. Matthew Coward, MD, Department of Urology


Christine "Chrissy" Kistler, MD, MASc, Department of Family Medicine
