Dr. Katherine Andrinopoulos honored with 2023 Tulane teaching award
At the 2023 Unified Commencement Ceremony, four Tulane University faculty members will receive university-wide teaching awards, with IHSD Associate Professor Katherine Andrinopoulos receiving the President’s Award for Excellence in Graduate and Professional Teaching.
Andrinopoulos, Associate Professor in the Department of International Health and Sustainable Development and Director of Doctoral Programs in the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine earned the award via glowing student feedback.
A former graduate student wrote: “It is an honor to nominate the most influential person of my career trajectory. Due to the technical training, support and encouragement I received from Katherine, I have been able to fully engage in my passion for making population-level impact… Her attentiveness to detail both in her technical subject matter expertise and emotional intelligence surpasses that of anyone else I have met. I’ve always told everyone who would listen that Katherine was and is the best mentor I always dreamed of having.”
Andrinopoulos's research focuses on uptake of HIV testing and adherence to the HIV care continuum for key populations. She recently developed global guidance for conceptualizing and measuring quality of HIV services for MSM and Transgender Women. She is currently developing a guidance document and online training to support the incorporation of sexual orientation and gender identity questions in data collection.
