Jasmine Zapata, MD, MPH, an assistant professor (CHS), in the Division of Neonatology and Newborn Nursery, has been selected as a University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH) Centennial Scholar, effective July 1, 2018.

The goal of the Centennial Scholars Program is to develop faculty whose diversity enhances the quality of education and research at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, and who may serve as visible and available role models for students and trainees, especially those from underrepresented minority backgrounds.

As an active member of the program, Dr. Zapata will receive three years of 50 percent protected time to complete scholarly activities related to maternal child health disparities research. She is extremely excited to combine her background in the fields of both pediatrics and preventive medicine/public health to impact change.

Congratulations on this outstanding honor!
