CTSI Congratulates Carol Mangione on UCLA Cultural North Star Award



UCLA CTSI News Archive

UCLA announced that Dr. Carol Mangione, the division chief of general internal medicine and health services research and professor of medicine and public health, has been selected as the recipient of the 2020 David Geffen School of Medicine Cultural North Star Award. While UCLA personnel could not celebrate Dr. Mangione together in person this year, they were pleased to recognize her remarkable contributions virtually: watch the video.

Mangione, CTSI program leader for the Workforce Development Program, was congratulated by many colleagues in the video including CTSI leaders, Drs. Alejandra Casillas and Keith Norris.

UCLA's annual Cultural North Star Award is designed to recognize an individual who has gone above and beyond to exemplify DGSOM’s Cultural North Star values in their work, actions or interactions.

This year, there were 43 worthy and phenomenal nominees. UCLA thanked all of the nominators for taking the time to recognize and celebrate the contributions of so many incredible members of our school. A panel of nine reviewers made up of Cultural North Star Steering Committee members and Cultural North Star Ambassadors scored all 43 nominees based on a Cultural North Star rubric. As always, the nominations were blinded for review, meaning that identifying characteristics–such as names and pronouns–were redacted. Dr. Mangione’s nomination received the highest cumulative score.
