Dr. Martha S. Tingen , a native of Camden and Charles W. Linder Endowed Chair in Pediatrics at the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Regents University, has been selected to participate in the Hedwig van Ameringen Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine (ELAM) Program at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia.

Tingen is a Fellow for the 19th incoming class for ELAM, the only program in North America dedicated to preparing women for senior leadership roles in academic health science institutions. ELAM is a core program of the Institute for Women’s Health and Leadership at Drexel University College of Medicine, which continues the legacy of advancing women in medicine that began in 1850 with the founding of the Female Medical College of Pennsylvania, the nation’s first women’s medical school.

Upon completion of the one-year fellowship in May 2014, the 54 members of this class will join a community of more than 800 highly accomplished leaders around the world. Fellows will complete online assignments and community building activities beginning in May that continue through the end of the program. They will begin the first of three week-long, in-residence sessions at the ACE Conference Center in Lafayette Hill, Pa. on Sept. 28, 2013.

Tingen, who also is Co-Director of the Georgia Regents University Child Health Discovery Institute and a Professor in the GRU College on Nursing, also was recently selected as a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing.

She is an established investigator with a school and community-based focus on preventing tobacco use in children and helping smoking parents quit as well as newer initiatives working with community partners to raise awareness about early alcohol abuse and enable prevention.

She is a standing member of the Community Level Health Promotion Study Section of the National Institutes of Health and was an invited reviewer earlier this year for Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer grant applications to the NIH. She is a reviewer for the American Journal of Health Promotion and a nicotine and tobacco research reviewer for Health Promotion Practice, Annals of Behavioral Medicine, Preventive Medicine and Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics.

She is a mentor for GRU's master's and certificate programs in clinical and translational science for clinicians and a member of the university’s Research Advisory Committee, Enterprise Strategic Planning Research Committee and Human Assurance Committee, which reviews clinical trial proposals. She is a member of the leadership team of the GRU Institute of Public and Preventive Health and earned the 2012 Outstanding Researcher Award from the GRU Research Institute.

Tingen is an honors graduate of the GRU College of Nursing Master of Science in nursing program and the University of South Carolina's Nurse Practitioner Program. She earned a doctor in nursing science with distinction from USC.
