Charles Drew University executive vice president selected to be Research!America ambassador
Date:1/16/2009

LOS ANGELESJanuary 16, 2009Research!America honored Dr. Keith C. Norris, the executive vice president for Research and Health Affairs at Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science, by naming him an "ambassador" for the nonprofit organization's Paul G. Rogers Society for Global Health Research.

The Rogers Society, named for the late Florida Congressman Paul G. Rogers (1921-2008), a champion for health research and Research!America chair emeritus, advocates for greater U.S. investment in research to fight diseases that disproportionately affect the world's poorest nations.

Norris is among 25 new ambassadors for the Rogers Society. They will join 50 of their peers in Research!America's Rogers Society in a united effort to build a national conversation around the value and importance of U.S.-funded global heath research.

These prominent advocates include experts in pediatrics, nursing and dentistry and specialize in critical areas, such as neglected and emerging tropical diseases, tuberculosis and polio. They were selected by an advisory council comprised of renowned leaders in science, public policy and communications, including four Nobel Laureates.

Together with their peers, they will meet with policymakers to make the case for an increased U.S. investment in global health research.

"These ambassadors will be exceptional leaders in advocacy. Their example will serve as an inspiration for every global health researcher," said the John Edward Porter, chair of the Rogers Society Advisory Council and Research!America board. "Paul Rogers' spirit lives on through the work of each of these ambassadors. As he often said, without research, there is no hope."

Dr. Norris is the second Rogers Society ambassador from Charles Drew University. Dr. Eric Bing, CDU's director of International HIV programs, served in the same capacity two years ago.

"I see our nation reasserting itself as a global leader
