Imani Baker receives 2012 Guarnaccia Award
August 2012. The 2012 Project L/EARN “Intern of the Year” Award was given to Imani Baker, a public health and pre-nursing major at Rutgers University. Ms. Baker worked under the guidance of faculty mentor Dr. Judith Lucas to write a paper about “The Association between Nursing Home Culture Change and Quality Indicators: Deficiency Citations and Antipsychotic Medication Use.” She is applying to BSN/MSN programs for next fall.

"L to R: Imani Baker, Dr. Peter Guarnaccia.

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.

Dr. Guarnaccia is a medical anthropologist at the Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research, and the Department of Human Ecology at Rutgers University. He stepped down as Faculty Director of Project L/EARN in 2008, after 12 years in that role under funding from the National Institutes of Mental Health.
