“I’m so honored to be elected to a society that includes behavioral medicine investigators I admire, all of whom are doing incredible work that has a direct impact on health,” Moskowitz said. “This includes many Northwestern colleagues, and I’m thrilled to have my work considered among the high quality of work that they do.”

Moskowitz’s research team is also currently conducting trials of the intervention aimed at improving health and health behaviors in dementia caregivers, high school students, people with type 2 diabetes, women with stage IV breast cancer, and people living with HIV.

Moskowitz is also the director of the Behavioral, Social and Implementation Science core of the Third Coast Center for AIDS Research. She will be honored at the annual ABMR meeting in June.  

Congratulations Dr. Moskowitz on this incredible honor!
