The Lisa J. Heiser Award for Junior Faculty Contribution in Education

This award is named in honor of Lisa J. Heiser, MA, NCC, LCPC, past Assistant Dean for Faculty Development and Equity, Johns Hopkins Medicine. Lisa was the embodiment of what makes Johns Hopkins Medicine special; smart and multi-talented, combining fierce tenacity and commitment with tremendous personal warmth, friendliness and collegiality. In the short time Lisa served as an assistant dean until her passing, she developed an impressive portfolio of programs and initiatives that have transcended the founding vision of her office, fostering the development of all faculty members. The Heiser award is given to one junior faculty member, on faculty five years or less, who has made an outstanding contribution in medical and biomedical education, and shown great promise for future meaningful contributions.
