Wake Forest University’s associate provost of research has announced the faculty recipients of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) seed grants to support research on health and wellbeing.
“The research being supported with these grants has sustainability potential and will have a great impact on many people’s lives,” said Bruce King, associate provost of research at the university.
Last year, BCBSNC partnered with Wake Forest University to create a model for health and wellbeing that included seed money for faculty research in these areas. Four grants, for $50,000 each, were awarded to Mark Jensen, School of Divinity; Mark Hall, School of Law; Jeff Katula, Health and Exercise Science; and Christine Soriano, Theater and Dance.
Additionally, the initial BCBSNC gift supports the transformation of Reynolds Gym into a comprehensive center for wellbeing, has funded a new director of wellbeing position and will support Wake Forest’s approach to wellbeing across eight dimensions – physical, emotional, spiritual, social, intellectual, financial, occupational, and environmental – under the Thrive umbrella.
The seed money will support the following research projects:

The School of Divinity has received one of ten grants awarded to theological schools by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)’s “Science for Seminaries” program.
The project, “Moving Science to the Forefront of Theological Education,” will enhance the school’s leading interdisciplinary Master of Divinity curriculum by integrating science into biblical studies, historical studies and theological studies.
Several courses in the Master of Divinity curriculum will undergo revision to raise awareness of the relevance of science and increase the competency of future religious leaders who can integrate knowledge and understanding of science into the public discourse of the faith communities they will lead.
“This grant is a wonderful opportunity for the School of Divinity to make the most of its location at a great university like Wake Forest,” said Gail R. O’Day, dean of the School of Divinity. “Our students will be even more creative and effective religious leaders because they will be informed and articulate about the scientific perspective and contributions to the issues of our day. And it is so fitting that through this grant we can carry on the deep commitments of President Poteat and the strong history of the University in this area.”
