MANHATTAN — Kansas State University's Elaine Johannes, associate professor and Extension specialist in the College of Human Ecology's School of Family Studies and Human Services, has received the 2014 Dean Barbara S. Stowe Faculty Development Award to work with the Kansas Adolescent Health State Plan.
Johannes, whose primary work is in youth development, will travel to Washington, D.C., to work with the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs and to meet about national technical assistance for needs assessment associated with the development and implementation of the state of Kansas' adolescent health plan. Her work is in partnership with the Bureau of Family Health in the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
Johannes was honored Aug. 18 at the College of Human Ecology's annual fall forum for faculty and graduate students.
Johannes has a bachelor's degree in psychology, a master's degree in adult and community counseling, and a doctorate in life span human development from Kansas State University.
In 2010, she won the College of Human Ecology's Faculty Extension Excellence Award for her community-based health promotion work featuring effective youth/adult partnerships. She has received grants totaling more than $2.5 million.
The Barbara S. Stowe Faculty Development Award honors Stowe, who served as dean of the College of Human Ecology from 1983 to 1998. The award fund supports the professional development of faculty who translate research-based knowledge of human ecology into practice in higher education, business, industry or public policy.
