As the recipient, Schneider will receive complimentary travel expenses and registration for the 2018 ASPPH annual meeting.

“During Hurricane Harvey, Erin made sure that our students from the Houston area were safe and well taken care of,” said Dean Jay Maddock, PhD, of the School of Public Health. “Around this same time, tragedy struck when one of our students drowned, was in a coma and later died. Erin spent countless hours in the hospital with her, keeping watch and keeping her family in India informed of her status. The Indian Consulate in Houston was stunned by the amount of time she spent with this student.”
Schneider has worked since October 2011 in the Office of Student Affairs at the School of Public Health. She earned a bachelor’s degree in biomedical sciences in 2004 and a master of public health degree in social and behavioral health in 2007, both from Texas A&M University.
