Three women employed with Ohio University’s College of Health Sciences and Professions were recently recognized for their successes in a variety of roles during OHIO’s 2019 Women’s Achievement Dinner.
Hosted by Sigma Lambda Gamma National, Inc., Rho Lambda and the University’s Women’s Center, the dinner celebrates the achievements of women across Ohio University each year. Among the honorees this year were Jennifer Chabot, Jennifer Bennett and Danielle Schabel.
Chabot, an associate professor and coordinator for child and family studies in the Department of Social and Public Health, was honored with the Outstanding Female Mentor Award.
“This mentoring award means a great deal to me, especially knowing it came from students,” Chabot said. “I truly hope they know how much this recognition means to me. Having strong, trusting, caring mentors mattered to me throughout my life, so I take this role very seriously.”
The Lasting Action Award was awarded to Bennett, director of WellWorks.
“Receiving this award lifts up my programmatic efforts and their positive ripple effect on our campus community and beyond,” she said. “Programs like Women on Weights and PowerClean provide fitness-based learning and community building for women and provides an experiential learning opportunity for our female students. These programs foster communities of strong women, prioritizing their wellness journeys and lifting up one another.”
Schabel, MSN, RN, a lecturer of nursing, was honored with the Social Justice in the Workplace Award.
“I am honored and excited to have received this award. I believe we all have a responsibility to advocate for our patients, students, coworkers and community members,” she said. “The School of Nursing and CHSP have supported efforts to improve the knowledge and care of members from our LGBT community and I look forward to the continued growth and development of diversity and inclusion within our college.”
