YWCA Greater Cleveland honored three women from Case Western Reserve University and two with secondary appointments at the university at its 35th Annual Women of Achievement Awards luncheon this month.
School of Medicine Dean Pamela Davis earned the Women of Achievement award, a prestigious honor that recognizes women in Cleveland with outstanding leadership qualities and commitments to their careers and communities. Award recipients also exemplify YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism and empowering women. Davis became the School of Medicine’s first female dean in 2007 and is one of fewer than 20 female medical school deans in the U.S. Find out who else was honored.
