Dr. April Kimmel among 2019 Blick Scholars
July 8, 2019
The Office of the Vice President for Health Sciences has announced the 2019 Blick Scholars, three out of four of which reside in the School of Medicine. Congratulations to Drs. Alexis Edwards, Psychiatry; April Kimmel, Health Policy; and Mikhail Dozmorov, Biostatistics!
The Blick Scholar appointment comes with an annual award of approximately $25,000/year (based on market performance) from the George and Lavinia Blick Research Fund. Created with a generous $2 million bequest by Lavinia Blick, the fund was her gesture of gratitude for the care she and her family received at MCV and later at the VCU Medical Center. Her only stipulation was that the gift fund medical research on the MCV Campus.
