Leonard White, PhD, Associate Professor in Neurology and DIBS Faculty Network Member, has again received the 2018 Duke Medicine Golden Apple Award for Pre-Clinical Science Faculty.

The award, presented March 10 during the annual School of Medicine Student-Faculty Show, is the most prestigious teaching award presented by the Duke University School of Medicine student body to recognize physician-teachers that the medical students feel have played an exceptionally effective and dedicated role in their education. This honor is awarded by the Davison Council, the student government organization for the medical school, reflecting the nominations and votes of all four classes of medical students.

White teaches in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program in the medical school. He also leads the education team of the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences and is the associate director of undergraduate studies in neuroscience; co-director of the Brain and Society theme of Duke’s Bass Connections initiative; and associate director for integrated human biological sciences of the Master of Biomedical Sciences program. He directs neuroscience courses for medical students and undergraduates at Duke and leads workshops on the structure and function of the human brain.
