The Ripple Effect of a Rotating Professorship: The Joy McCann Professorship at the University of Massachusetts Medical School

Description

In 2005, the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) received an endowment from the Joy McCann Foundation for rewarding outstanding female faculty mentors and leaders in medicine at UMMS. This poster describes the professorship, which is awarded for a three-year term with the option to be extended for a second term. The income available from the fund may be used at the discretion of the professor for salary supplement and/or program support. The professorship should be used to encourage, inspire, and reward women faculty in their academic careers.
