The Office of Postdoctoral Education at UAB has awarded me two Fall 2013 awards: the Career Enhancement Award and the Postdoctoral Travel Award. The Career Enhancement Award is designed to fund extramural training activities. In my case, I have used the $1500 award to attend the Statistical Horizons Meta-Analysis course this summer. The Postdoctoral Travel Award is intended to fund travel to a conference to present scientific work. This $500 award will be used to travel to the Obesity Society meetings in Atlanta this fall. My gratitude to the OPE for supporting my career development.
