Drexel Librarian Gary Childs Receives 2011 Nursing Science Chairman’s Award
Drexel University Libraries Health Sciences Education/Reference Librarian Gary Childs was honored with the 2010 – 2011 Doctor of Nursing Practice (DrNP) Nursing Science Chairman’s Award. The award was presented to Childs in recognition of his outstanding support of graduate students and faculty in the program.
“At this doctoral program, research and database searching are critical. Gary’s name was at the top of the list because he not only assists students with this process immensely, but also has a wonderful style of presentation that the students truly enjoy, “ Al Rundio, Department Chair of the Doctoral Nursing Department, said.
Each year, the department chair has the honor of selecting an individual, within or outside of Drexel, who has gone above and beyond in assisting students at Drexel.
“I’m very flattered and honored, to say the least,” recipient Gary Childs said. “The award came as quite a surprise and it feels really wonderful to receive this distinction."
Childs works at the Hahnemann Library.
