Musunga Mulenga receives 2010 Guarnaccia Award
The 2010 “Intern of the Year” Award was given to intern Musunga Mulenga, a public health and pre-medical major at Rutgers University. Ms. Mulenga worked under the guidance of Dr. Derek DeLia of the Center for State Health Policy on a paper analyzing hospital readmission for congestive heart failure.

The award was created to honor Dr. Peter Guarnaccia for his dedication to developing and overseeing Project L/EARN. Each summer’s recipient is chosen by vote of his/her peers, based on their rankings of all interns in terms of dedication, passion, tenacity and work ethic – characteristics that Dr. Guarnaccia has brought to the program and modeled to the interns in his role as director, guest lecturer, writing workshop teacher, and mentor.
