UW-CTRI Researcher Dr. Kristin Berg (left) received a Faculty Excellence in Clinical Care Award from the University of Wisconsin Division of General Internal Medicine for her work caring for patients in clinic and in studies.

“Very flattering and unexpected,” Berg said. “The ceremony takes place at one of our monthly meetings; this year, it was virtual.”

UW-CTRI Director Dr. Michael Fiore said Berg has been integral to providing proper care for UW-CTRI study participants. “One big thing she does is to track adverse events in our studies,” Fiore said, “and it’s absolutely essential we do that well to ensure we help people successfully quit smoking and also never harm a research participant.”

“Care of patients and research participants takes a village,” Berg said, “so many thanks go to the folks at clinic and UW-CTRI that I’m happy to call teammates!”
