Wilson, CHOICES receive grant

Lavi WilsonLavi Wilson, Wake Forest’s substance abuse prevention coordinator, and the WFU CHOICES program (Cultivating Healthier Opinions In Challenging Everyday Situations) have been awarded a grant from the Stacie Mathewson Foundation (http://www.staciemathewsonfoundation.org/) to support Wake Forest students in recovery.

The goal of the $10,000 grant is to connect these students with existing campus and community resources, provide substance-free social options, and create an on-campus network of support for students who are recovering from substance abuse and addiction.

“This grant is important to our community because it will assist in the support of Wake Forest students recovery by providing confidential assessments and recovery counseling services, educational workshops, seminars, programs, and links for students to on- and off-campus support services,” Wilson said.

Cecil Price, the director of the Student Health Service, said: “Lavi is to be commended for her efforts to help all our students who struggle with substance abuse issues.”

Price receives SCHA's highest honor

Dr. Cecil PriceDr. Cecil Price, director of the Student Health Service, recently received the Bohmann Award from The Southern College Health Association (SCHA). The award is the organization’s highest honor, and it recognizes outstanding leaders who have established impressive standards for excellence and service both in the field of college health as well as in SCHA.

Price was lauded for his years of service at Wake Forest and his work as the coordinator of the Sunbelt Directors Meeting, a networking meeting of directors of student health services held each summer.

Price said he was surprised by the award as the Board of Directors of the SCHA on which he serves had kept his nomination and selection a secret until the presentation banquet.

“It was an honor to be selected by my peers at other universities in the Southeast for this award,” Price said. “I’ve told those in attendance as well as those who’ve sent their congratulations that this award was a celebration of the good work of the great people who surround me at the Wake Forest Student Health Service.”

Price received the award from its namesake, Dr. Charles F. Bohmann, on April 18 at the SCHA annual meeting hosted by the University of Alabama.
