Hannah Allen, a third year doctoral student, has been named a UMD Outstanding Graduate Assistant Award. She has received this award for her three years of service as a graduate assistant for the Department of Behavioral and Community Health. Ms. Allen has assisted faculty in implementing their courses and research, and her aptitude and passion for education also led to her being assigned her own class. For the past few semesters she has taught HLTH 285: Controlling Stress and Tension. 

Ms. Allen’s award comes by nomination by her mentor Dr. Faika Zanjani.  Dr. Zanjani has worked with Ms. Allen in the classroom and more recently as a Graduate Research Assistant (GRA).  “Hannah is extremely hard working and a diligent student, researcher, and GRA," Dr. Zanjani said. "She tackles all tasks with extreme dedication and performs above and beyond, in a professional and effective manner.”

Ms. Allen’s award, given by the Graduate School, will be celebrated on Thursday May 11th at 3:00pm during the Fellowship and Awards Celebration.
