The Center for Consumer Health Informatics Research (CCHIR) is happy to announce the winner of its inaugural Medicine 2.0 @ Harvard Scholarship!
Nova Southeastern University (NSU) pharmacy student Hoda Masmouei, B.S., M.S. is the 2012 winner of the scholarship to attend the 5th World Congress on Social Media, Mobile Apps, and Internet/Web 2.0 in Medicine and Public Health (aka Medicine 2.0 @ Harvard). Hoda’s scholarship application demonstrated her many outstanding qualities as well as her prominent leadership roles. These include serving as president of the NSU student society chapter of FSHP, which established an Informatics Special Interest Group, and co-chairing a Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity event that raised $10,000 for the Elizabeth Glazer Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Hoda’s experience also includes her work as a CCHIR research assistant for an ongoing diabetes mHealth study at the Memorial Healthcare Systems primacy care clinics. Previously Hoda was involved in NIH-supported diabetes research that was published in the Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology.
In response to her opportunity to see the research presented at the upcoming Medicine 2.0 conference in September, Hoda said she is, “looking forward to meeting the pioneers of health informatics and hopefully being a part of helping to write its future”. She also plans to “bring back information to NSU and help expand the horizon of the future of pharmacy for my peers”. CCHIR looks forward to Hoda’s reports from Medicine 2.0 and wishes her safe travels to Boston!
