Gabrielle Parkin the 2020 winner of the Richard A. Bloom, M.D. Award for Distinguished Teaching in the SAGES Program. The award was established in 2008 to honor distinguished teaching in the SAGES program at Case Western Reserve University.
She was nominated by four students who offered the following sort of comments: “the most engaging college professor I have ever had.” “My writing has also improved immensely thanks to her meticulous grading and feedback of my papers.” ” She put a great deal of time into, not only her class, but also her students. We are people. We have lives and feelings and thoughts and Professor Parkin used those to enhance this class and make learning possible.”
