On January 11 2017, Anne Stewart, professor of graduate psychology at James Madison University, was elected Distinguished Fellowship of the National Academies of Practice (NAP) in Psychology.
Stewart was nominated by fellow NAP member, Carol Dudding of Communications Sciences and Disorders (CSD). This award recognizes Stewart’s leadership within her profession and among fellow colleagues. As a professor, Stewart encourages her students to apply their theory and knowledge within the classroom setting to real world issues to create positive change. Personally, she has been involved with research programs to help cope with the aftermath of landmines in Lebanon, Jordan, Bosnia, Vietnam and Mozambique. Collectively, she has acted out Ghandi’s counsel to be the change you wish to see in the world, as an educator, practitioner, scholar, community member and world citizen.
In her own words Stewart said, “I was excited to have been elected to the National Academies of Practice in Psychology but actually was even more honored to have been nominated to NAP by my colleague and co-conspirator in inter-professional education, Dr. Carol Dudding.”
Along with other awardees, Stewart will be recognized in Philadelphia, PA, March 17-18, during NAP’s Annual Meeting & Forum and formal induction ceremony. The ceremony will take place during a Gala Banquet where each nominee will receive their NAP medallion.
