Newly Established (Alexander) Sandy Blount Excellence in Behavioral Science Award

On Sept 16, the University of Massachusetts Medical School established an award in honor of Sandy Blount, who joined Antioch’s faculty this Summer.  The text of the award reads, in part:

Alexander Blount Excellence in Behavioral Science in Family Medicine Award

This award is named after (Alexander) Sandy Blount, Ed.D, who was the director of behavioral science in the department for 18 years.  Under his leadership and vision, the behavioral science curriculum in the residency underwent a massive overhaul, which included developing a post-doctoral fellowship in primary care psychology.  This change has allowed family medicine residents to learn behavioral science longitudinally and through collaborative patient care on the inpatient medicine service and in the respective health centers, alongside fellows and behavioral science faculty.  He laid a foundation for behavioral science education and training that is nationally recognized and lauded.  Sandy was trained as a family therapist and was passionate about teaching and training from a systems perspective.  He was generous with his time and sharing his expertise.
