Shelly Davis, a graduate student in NDSU’s Master of Public Health program, recently was awarded the Northwest Native American Research Centers for Health fellowship.
The fellowship program assists full-time students pursuing their research-related degrees. Its goal is to increase the number of American Indian/Alaska Native health professionals who have the biomedical or social service research skills needed to conduct successful research projects.
“There are only so many fellowships awarded each year, so I am very grateful to have been selected,” said Davis, who is from Belcourt, North Dakota. “This recognition provides me with even more motivation and confidence to fulfill my goal of serving tribal communities as a public health professional and researcher. The fellowship has given me many great opportunities to build upon what I am gaining and achieving here at NDSU. I am very thankful for it all.”
Davis is a graduate research assistant at the NDSU Department of Public Health’s American Indian Public Health Resource Center.
