“It means a great deal to be honored in this way,” says Winskell. “Teaching is such an important and rewarding part of my professional life. I love the passion and the energy of the students. I love the way they challenge my thinking and push me to question my preconceptions.”

Winskell is the third member from the HDGH to win the Early Career in Public Health Teaching Award. Juan Leon, PhD, MPH, won in 2012 and Mo Ali, MBChB, MSc, MBA, won in 2013.
