Congratulations to Ali Rosenberg, graduate student at the George Washington University (GW) Milken Institute School of Public Health, on being named 2017 Graduate Student Employee of the Year.
Rosenberg has worked as a graduate office assistant in the Department of Clinical Research and Leadership at the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences for two years. Those who work with her note how quick she is to offer assistance on projects within the department.
“Ali is a phenomenal person and employee,” said Stephanie Rasgus, assistant director of admissions and enrollment services in the Department of Clinical Research and Leadership, who nominated her for the award. She explained that Rosenberg’s background in clinical research has made her an asset to a department that specializes in it. Rosenberg assists faculty with research and developing presentations.
The department had nominated Rosenberg for the award last year as well and she ended up a finalist. They were thrilled, Rasgus said, to see her win this year.
Rosenberg is pursuing a degree in public health, with a focus on maternal and child health. She hopes to use her research skills and experience to help women and children. Rosenberg completed her practicum with a D.C.-based organization working to end sexual violence through grants to local organizations. She also has assisted with research looking at sexual violence intervention strategies in athletics, and presented findings to a team at the California Coalition Against Sexual Assault.
GW employs about 5,000 students across campus and celebrated those students during National Student Employment Week from April 10-14. Awards were given out at the Excellence in Student Life Awards ceremony at Lisner Auditorium on the evening of April 20.
