Brandye D. Nobiling, Ph.D. '08, Assistant Professor and Program Director of Health Education & Community Health at Salisbury University, and Adrian L. Lyde, Ph.D. '10, Assistant Professor of Health Education at Illinois State University, were selected as the inaugural Sliepcevich Historical Research Fellows. The fellowship provides recipients with an opportunity to address the need for historical research and make connections between the work of Elena M. Sliepcevich, the landmark School Health Education Study (SHES) that she directed, and contemporary Health Education issues. Based on their demonstrated interest in School Health Education and Historical Research methods, Drs. Nobiling and Lyde received Elena M. Sliepcevich Centre Research Fellow Awards and stipends to support their research, which resulted in the following presentation and article:
