Emily Moseley awarded prestigious Anne Rudigier Award

Emily Moseley, Human Development Institute (HDI) trainee, and graduate student in the University of Kentucky College of Social Work, has been awarded the prestigious Anne Rudigier Award at the 2020 Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) Conference.  This award is presented by the Rudigier Family to commemorate the accomplishments and commitment of their daughter Anne to recognize an outstanding trainee/student demonstrating a commitment to supporting people with developmental disabilities and their families.

Emily began a research assistantship with HDI in 2019 and has recently worked on several research projects related to people with disabilities and their experience with COVID-19. She is pursuing a Master’s degree in Social Work and a Certificate in Developmental Disabilities from the UK Human Development Institute. Her commitment to social justice and equity, academic excellence, and leadership qualities were recognized in July 2020, when she received HDI’s highest student achievement, the Paul Kevin Burberry Award.
