Dr. Joanne Jordan receives Distinguished Service to Rural Life Award
Date:8/1/2011

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Joanne M. Jordan, MD, MPH, director of the Thurston Arthritis Research Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, has received the 2011 Distinguished Service to Rural Life Award from the Rural Sociological Society (RSS).

The purpose of the award is to recognize a person who has made an outstanding contribution to the enhancement of rural life and rural people. For more than 20 years Dr. Jordan, has through her work on the Johnston County Osteoarthritis Project, been dedicated to improving the health of rural North Carolinians. This dedication has been manifested through her research agenda, mentorship of a new generation of clinicians and researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and her commitment to eliminating disparities often noted in rural America. The success of the project has been enhanced by Dr. Jordan's decision from the beginning to hire, train and keep staff from the County itself, enhancing her commitment to the project, the county and the project participants.

Charles G. Helmick, MD, of the Centers for Disase Control and Prevention has been a longtime collaborator and advocate for the project. "Dr. Jordan's initial idea to focus on a rural area, her steadfastness in pursuing that idea and keeping it alive for 20 years (and for the foreseeable future), and her commitment to the project by staying close to the county and the staff, all speak to me of an outstanding contribution to the enhancement of rural life and rural people," said Dr. Helmick.

"Dr. Jordan's work and that of her colleagues has really re-defined how we conceptualize musculoskeletal problems in a rural population," said Timothy S. Carey, MD, MPH, Director of the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research at UNC. "Dr. Jordan's research is exemplary in the area of translation science and I frequently use it as the model for other researchers to emulate."
