Dr. Yue Lu named U-HELM Fellow
Congratulations to Assistant Professor of Molecular Pharmaceutics Dr. Yue Lu, who was recently selected as a Utah Health Equity Leadership & Mentoring (U-HELM) fellow!
Launched at the University of Utah School of Medicine in 2018, U-HELM provides mentoring and leadership development opportunities to junior faculty members and postdoctoral scholars from underrepresented populations in the health sciences or involved in health equity research and practice. U-HELM fellows move through a yearlong curriculum of monthly seminars and networking events that focus on traditional academic career development as well as topics related to cultural identity and challenges of systemic racism. In addition, fellows are matched with a senior-level faculty mentor to address issues of leadership and cultural identity. U-HELM mentors are trained in cultural diversity with methods proven to enhance mentoring effectiveness.
