Bernice Pescosolido elected to National Academy of Sciences
Congratulations to Irsay Director Bernice Pescosolido, who has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences. She is the only IU faculty member ever to be elected to two of the national academies. In 2016, she was elected to the National Academy of Medicine. Pescosolido, whose research and teaching focus on social issues in health, illness and healing, also is only the 30th faculty member elected to the National Academy of Sciences in the university’s history.
