In February of 2014, the 26th Annual Ethnographic & Qualitative Research Conference (EQRC) was held in Las Vegas, NV bringing together researchers, practitioners, and students from around the country.
As part of the annual event, awards were distributed during the keynote luncheon to those who qualify in scholarship, with particular consideration is given to individuals with regular EQRC attendance and/or who have assisted with the conference (juried review of proposals, journal review board participation, and the like). Selected by a blue ribbon committee, each year only 4-5 individuals are honored with the award.
This year Dr. Cecilia S. Obeng, Associate Professor of the Department of Applied Health Science, was honored with the award
for her scholarly work on qualitative research.
