Congratulations to Dr. Bowers for receiving the 2014 Paul Satz Career Mentoring Award from at the annual meeting of the International Neuropsychology Society (INS) in Seattle.  This award is bestowed upon an individual whose mentoring and teaching  activities have made a broad and profound impact on the careers of students in the field of neuropsychology.  It was established in 2011 to honor  the contributions of Paul Satz Ph.D., an early  pioneer in the field of neuropsychology.  Deeply dedicated to teaching and mentorship , Satz began the subspeciality of clinical neuropsychology at the University of Florida in 1964 and went on to develop an internationally known post-doctoral training program at UCLA  where he mentored over 200 trainees.  Dr. Bowers, an early mentee of Dr. Satz, has been a faculty member  at the University of Florida for 34 years, where she has mentored undergraduate, graduate, and medical students, interns, and post-docs.  Continuously funded since 1981, Dr. Bowers’ research, with the help of her many students, has spanned laterality and the clinical neuroscience of emotion in stroke, epilepsy and Parkinson disease.
