Distinguished Instructor Receives International Accolades
Jan 13, 2015
The Columbus Campus has many good reasons to be proud of faculty member Doug Lewis. He possesses a long list of educational and professional accomplishments and holds nine degrees, including a Master of Business Administration, a PhD in health services administration, a Juris Doctor, and a Doctor of Audiology degree. In addition to his work as an audiologist and a lawyer, he teaches a number of different courses at the campus, where he enjoys a great rapport with the students, staff, and faculty. “The only way you can improve is to become a content expert in as many things as you can,” he has said.
Doug can now add another achievement to his long list of accomplishments. He recently received the Joel S. Wernick Award for Dispenser Education at a recent convention of the International Hearing Society held in Palm Springs, California. The convention involved an examination of products and services pertaining to hearing health care from over fifty companies, as well as a variety of educational sessions on the topic. The Dispenser in Education Award is named for the late Joel Wernick, who held a PhD in auditory physiology from Stanford University and was a professor, researcher, and author. Doug, whose interest in audiology grew from his love of music, was honored to be the recipient of the prestigious award.
This recognition is yet another representation of the professionalism and exceptional expertise that Doug has been bringing to the campus in the more than five years that he has been a faculty member. During those five years, Doug has also received the Outstanding Achievement Award from American National University and has been recognized as a campus Difference Maker.
