Kristie Ebi of the University of Washington School of Public Health was recently designated a National Associate of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, an honorary title that recognizes Ebi’s extraordinary service to help provide analysis and advice to the government and the public on matters of science, engineering and medicine.

“The National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine perform a vital function for the nation: provide independent, expert advice on some of the pressing challenges facing the nation and the world, to inform sound policies and advance scientific understanding and application. The Academies have been doing so since 1863,” said Ebi, a professor in the UW School of Public Health’s departments of Global Health and Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences. “I am deeply honored to be designated a National Associate, and look forward to continuing my service.”

The honorary title – offered as a lifetime appointment – recognizes individuals who have served pro bono publico or as members on committees of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, as well as those who have served as reviewers of the National Academies’ draft reports.
