Goodman is a professor with basic biomedical sciences and director of the South Dakota Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network, which is led by USD. Goodman received her doctoral degree in physiology from the University of Minnesota. Settles is an assistant professor with basic biomedical sciences who has a master’s degree in anatomy from New York Medical College. Settles received the award for excellence in medical education, while Goodman was honored for excellence in undergraduate education.
Moor received the Learning Resource Fund Education Project Award for her project, “Complementary and Alternative Medicine.” Moor attended a conference and then helped incorporate alternative medicine into the curriculum of fourth-year medical students. As the use of alternative medicine increases among consumers, Moor argued that medical students needed a basic knowledge of the alternatives available to adequately answer questions from patients. Moor is the educational coordinator for the medical school’s Sioux Falls campus. She has a master’s degree in adult education from USD.
