Congratulations to Jessie Bricker, OTD, OTR/L, who will receive the 2023 Dean’s Impact Award. The award recognizes faculty members whose superior efforts in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic have had a lasting impact, who demonstrated the highest level of professionalism, and who delivered exceptional results across the missions of the School of Medicine. Recipients of the Dean’s Impact Awards represent the determination and adaptability, compassion and innovation required to lead us through unprecedented times.
“Dr. Bricker is being recognized for her extraordinary service during the COVID pandemic in creative problem-solving the cancellation of nearly all of our Level II fieldwork placements. Her wonderful dedication and extraordinary out-of-the-box thinking enabled our students to stay on track for graduation,” says nominator Lisa Tabor Connor, PhD, MSOT, OTR/L. “In the landscape of occupational programs nationwide, very few were able to graduate their students on-time. We applaud her marvelous achievements in serving our students and ensuring their successful completion of the Program in Occupational Therapy.”
Bricker, and all faculty awardees, will be recognized during a special event with Dr. Anthony Fauci on May 16 at the Eric P. Newman Education Center.
