Congratulations Ron Andersen!

 2012 Dickson Emeriti Professors Named

The Dickson Emeritus/a Professorship Award is given each year to one or more emeriti professors to recognize continuing scholarship, teaching and service at UCLA since retirement. The late Edward A. Dickson, Regent of the University of California from 1913 to 1946, made the original gift that supports awards at each of the UC campuses.

Three UCLA Emeriti Professors have been selected to receive the Dickson Award, which includes a cash prize of $5,000: Professor Ronald M. Andersen; Professor Wesley S. Moore and Professor Hartmut E.F. Scharfe. In addition, a special award for unusual and extraordinary service, along with a $1,000 award, will be given to Professor Melvin (Mef) Seeman. The awards will be presented at the UCLA Emeriti Association dinner on May 9, 2012 at the Faculty Center.

Ronald M. Andersen, Wasserman Professor Emeritus, Departments of Health Services and of Sociology. One of the leading sociologists in the world, Andersen is recognized as having created the field of scholarship addressing accessibility of health care. His model has been applied nationally and internationally as a framework for utilization and cost studies. Andersen is a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences. Following his retirement in 2005, he has continued to make exceptional contributions to research, teaching and community service, serving on review panels at the National Institutes of Health and collaborating on more than 30 research articles and two books. Andersen regularly teaches courses in the School of Public Health, and mentors not only graduate students, but also interns, residents, and post-doctoral fellows.
