WVU School of Public Health student selected for WVU Foundation Distinguished Doctoral Scholarship

Elizabeth Claydon, a prominent Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences in the WVU School of Public Health, was named one of four recipients of the WVU Foundation Distinguished Doctoral Scholarship. These scholarships are reserved for doctoral candidates who are working toward the completion of their dissertations during the Spring 2018 term.

Claydon, who is slated to graduate this May, serves as the President of the WVU Gamma Mu Chapter of the Delta Omega Honorary Society and is a member of the WVU Council for Women’s Concerns. Her research focuses on eating disorder prevention, and she is the Social Media Committee Co-Chair for the Academy of Eating Disorders, an international organization of eating disorder professionals.

“Eating disorders are an under-recognized public health problem, so it is an honor to receive a distinguished dissertation scholarship on this topic,” Claydon said. “There is a place within public health for eating disorder prevention, and this recognition helps validate that.”
