TWU’s Oomen-Early receives technology award from national health organization


DENTON — The American Association for Health Education (AAHE) recently named Texas Woman’s University faculty Jody Oomen-Early as its 2009 HEDIR Technology Award Recipient.

“Technology is reshaping most academic disciplines, especially the field of health education, and plays a major role in improving the health of our global society,” said Dr. Oomen-Early, TWU assistant professor of health studies. “I am honored to receive this award and for the opportunities I’ve been given at TWU to grow innovative, academic programs that prepare 21st century health practitioners and scholars.”

According to AAHE, the award recognizes a health educator who has transformed the profession of health education through the use of technology. Dr. Mark Kittleson, owner of HEDIR (the online Health Education Directory), partnered with the AAHE to create the technology award in 1997.

Since joining the TWU Department of Health Studies in 1999, Dr. Oomen-Early has been a pioneer in developing the department’s online bachelor and graduate health studies programs. She is the co-director of the Pioneer Breast Health and Community Outreach program of Denton County. She received TWU’s Distinction in E-Learning Award in 2007.
