CHDS Faculty Nicolas Menzies received a 2020 Harvard Chan Mentoring Award. The award recognizes faculty who enhance their students’ experience by their guidance and support and is conferred based on student nominations and comments.
Menzies teaches courses in decision analytic methods (RDS 285) and population health measurement (GHP 506), and leads the Master of Science program in the Department of Global Health and Population. He advises both doctoral and masters students. Feedback from Menzies’ students stressed his caring and his making time for students. Students commented, “Nick is an incredibly kind, supportive, and thoughtful mentor. He clearly cares deeply about his students’ career growth and well-being” and “Nick is an exemplary mentor who is not only knowledgeable in his research fields but also supportive and caring for his students. Despite having a busy calendar, Nick would always make time to meet with students regularly.” CHDS congratulates Menzies on this well-deserved acknowledgement of his contribution to HSPH students.
