Drs. Ceci Giachelli and Liz Swisher both received the annual Award for Excellence in Mentoring Women Faculty. This award recognizes faculty members who are creating the next generation of leaders and mentors.
This award is presented to an individual who has brought the needs and interests of the kidney patient community to the national forefront through journalistic excellence and who, over time, has informed Americans of the critical needs and concerns.
The Leaders in Health Care Awards are presented annually by Seattle Business magazine to “honor a remarkable assortment of compassionate people doing heroic work in Washington state.”
The award, named after John Pettit, UW Medicine’s former associate vice president for business and legal affairs, recognizes administrators who, like Rhodes, exemplify leadership, integrity and positivity.
