Jan R. Cloyde was a founding board member of the Iris Cantor-UCLA Women’s Health Center. Her enduring commitment to advancing women’s healthcare and fostering mentorship for emerging leaders left an indelible mark on all those who had the honor of working with her. The Jan R. Cloyde Legacy Award was created within the Iris Cantor-UCLA Women’s Health Center in homage to Jan’s extraordinary contributions.
Inspired by Jan’s remarkable commitment to mentorship, The Jan R. Cloyde Legacy Award provides funding for students conducting research in the field of Women’s Health at UCLA. Funds support these students’ efforts, including, but not limited to, travel to and/or attendance with their mentors at national and international meetings to present their work. Students apply on a rolling basis, and the Scientific Committee of the Iris Cantor-UCLA Women’s Health Center (“the Committee”) choose awardees based on:
a) Importance of research
b) Likelihood the student will continue in a career in women’s health research
c) Potential for meeting attendance to positively affect the course of the student’s career
