Morehouse doctor becomes Marshall Memorial Fellow

Morehouse School of Medicine’s Dr. Ayanna Buckner has been selected as a Marshall Memorial Fellow.

Buckner is the associate director of the Public Health and General Preventive Medicine Residency Program and assistant professor and clinical director in the Department of Community Health and Preventive Medicine.

She is one of 54 Americans representing 18 states and the District of Columbia who have been awarded this prestigious international fellowship for 2010, officials said.

During the 24-day traveling program, fellows will develop extensive knowledge of political, economic, and social institutions and issues facing the United States and Europe.

The MMF program educates the emerging American and European leaders on the importance of the transatlantic relationship and encourages them to collaborate on a range of international and domestic policy challenges.
