An A.T. Still University-College of Graduate Health Studies (ATSU-CGHS) alumna was recently recognized as part of a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) program honored for excellence.

Magon M. Saunders, DHSc, ’13, MS, RDN, LD, is part of CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP). The team was awarded the 2019 Hubert H. Humphrey Award for Service to America, presented by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for contributions to health, safety, and well-being of the nation. 

NDPP works to prevent Type 2 diabetes and improve health in the United States.

A graduate of ATSU-CGHS’ Doctor of Health Sciences program, Dr. Saunders provides technical assistance, fiscal, and management support to state public health department grantees, national organizations such as the American College of Preventive Medicine, the American Medical Association, and community-based organizations such as the Balm in Gilead, and Black Women’s Health Imperative. 

Dr. Saunders’ work focuses on screening, testing, and referral services, bi-directional referral systems, engagement of community health workers, health equity, the social determinants of health and disease, and working with faith-based organizations. Dr. Saunders also serves as a subject matter expert at the NDPP Customer Service Center and responds to consumers and health care providers’ requests related to these topic areas.
