The Department of Family & Social Medicine is pleased to announce the promotion of Dr. Earle Chambers, Dr. Sean Lucan, and Dr. Susan Rubin to the senior rank of Associate Professor, effective July 1, 2015.

Promotion to senior rank represents the recognition of a substantial contribution of academic work over a sustained period of time, acknowledged by both internal and external referees.

The long-term goal is to develop clinical and public health partnerships that will use multi-source data, including housing and neighborhood environment, to develop interventions that target vulnerable patient populations.

Dr. Chambers was recently awarded a 5-year K01 grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute for this study.
