Emory’s Dr. Venkat Narayan honored for mentoring
“Mentoring is one of the most important jobs we do in academics yet is frequently unrecognized and rarely rewarded,” said Dr. Carlos del Rio, chair of Emory’s Hubert Department of Global Health. “I am a firm believer that one of the most valuable assets someone can have during their career is having a good mentor. All of us who know Dr. Narayan have benefited from him and his mentoring, and it is a privilege to have him as a valued member of our faculty.”Since Asian Indians around the world have one of the highest rates of coronary artery disease (CAD) and diabetes—2-4 times higher at all ages than whites, blacks, Hispanics, and other Asians and 5-10 times higher in those under 40 years of age—Dr. Narayan’s own work and his mentoring of others are of great benefit to the Indian-American community and much appreciated.
