Assistant prof receives award

Dr. Eric A. Brody, assistant professor of clinical medicine and associate director of the Native American Cardiology Program based at the UA Sarver Heart Center, received a 2005 Distance Learning Award for Excellence in Distance Learning Teaching from the U.S. Distance Learning Association.

The award recognizes an outstanding person who has creatively used the medium to inspire learning in a given subject. Brody received the award for "EKG Jeopardy," his innovative distance education approach to teaching with the Native American Cardiology Program, according to a press release.

Brody's novel videoconference approach is modeled after the television game show "Jeopardy" and generates enthusiasm for learning complex cardiology concepts among his students at a variety of Arizona sites.

The teaching sessions are broadcast to multiple sites on the network of the UA Arizona Telemedicine Program, according to a press release.
