L to R: Provost Zelezny, Singh, Jackson, Dunbar, Gill and Vice President Lamas.

Two faculty within the College of Health and Human Services were recently honored with the 2015-16 Fresno State Outstanding Advisor Awards. Dr. Catherine Jackson, professor in the Department of Kinesiology, and Dr. Bhupinder Singh, assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy, were chosen among a group of 25 candidates from throughout the University. Each were each nominated by students and colleagues.

The announcement was made last month, by Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Lynette Zelezny, and Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, Dr. Frank Lamas.

At the May 5th awards reception, both Singh and Jackson received an engraved trophy, a certificate and a $1,000 stipend to be used for professional development. Other recipients included Kathy Dunbar of the University Advising Center and Moaaz Gill of the College of Science and Mathematics.

According to the student affairs website, each recipient was chosen because they “went above and beyond typical advising duties to inspire many students to reach for higher goals, believe in themselves, and develop a love for their respective areas of study or service.”

We congratulate Dr. Jackson and Dr. Singh on their wonderful recognition!

Dr. Jackson was recently featured in Readers Digest, in an article entitled, “9 Signs That Could Mean You’re Not Getting Enough Vitamin D.” Among the signs is fatigue, which could be a result of vitamin D deficiencies, according to Jackson. Read the article in its entirety here.
