NSU President and CEO George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D., recently presented Raymond Ownby, M.D., Ph.D., M.B.A., with the 3rd Annual Provost’s Research and Scholarship Award. The announcement was made at the External Funding Recognition Reception.

Ownby, who serves as a professor and chair of NSU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM) Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine, was nominated by NSU COM colleague Robin Jacobs, Ph.D., M.S.W. Ownby has published more than 100 articles and has been the recipient of several research grants from the National Institutes of Health. Recently, he and his team received a $1.35 million federal grant to create innovative methods to evaluate patients’ health literacy. His research and clinical interests include examination of the ways in which stress, mood, and inflammation interact in older adults.

The purpose of the Provost’s Research and Scholarship Award is to recognize a faculty member who has demonstrated significant achievement in support of NSU’s mission to foster scholarship, intellectual inquiry, and academic excellence. Research and scholarship are two of NSU’s eight core values, and excellence in these areas enhances education, patient care, and public service, and develops superior scholarship.
