PHHP’s employee of the year
Heather Steingraber was named the College of Public Health and Health Professions’ 2010 Employee of the Year. She was honored at the college’s annual employee recognition dinner in October. Steingraber has served as the research project manager of the college’s Florida Center for Medicaid and the Uninsured since 2002. She is responsible for the center’s day-to-day operation and is a major scientific contributor to the center’s research programs. Steingraber was recognized for her ingenuity, leadership, organization and rapport with colleagues at many levels, from part-time staff to directors and deans. “In addition to her attention to detail and commitment to getting things done, her ability to communicate with just about anyone in an open and professional way has made the difference between the success and failure of a project on more than one occasion,” wrote one nominator.
