In October 2015, Jennifer T. Loud, R.N., C.R.N.P., D.N.P., Assistant Chief of the Clinical Genetics Branch, received the NCI John P. Hartinger Leadership Development Award. This award is competitively awarded each year to an NCI employee in recognition of leadership potential, commitment to public service, and desire to further his/her executive development. The honor also serves to encourage excellence in management, personal leadership, and the highest standards of performance in all individuals.
The award includes a scholarship to support training in leadership development, which Dr. Loud will use in November to attend the Wharton Nursing Leaders Program, part of Wharton Executive Education at the University of Pennsylvania.
