Honoring SPIRIT at MHRI: Deliya Wesley

Deliya Wesley was awarded the SPIRIT of Excellence Award for the fourth quarter of 2018 at a presentation at University Town Center (UTC) offices. Deliya is the Research Scientist for Health Equity at MedStar Health Research Institute. Nominated by Angela Thomas, DrPH, MPH, MBA, Assistant Vice President, Healthcare Delivery Research at MHRI, the award was presented by Mary Anne Hinkson, Vice President of Research Operations.

Deliya was recognized for her commitment to the organization and her tremendous leadership. Deliya’s dedication goes beyond writing proposals, managing contracts, leading projects, collaborating with others, and writing publications. She is a great team player and treats all of her colleagues with integrity and respect.

“Deliya’s ability to integrate quickly and effectively into any team, promote the value of her research, and contribute significantly ultimately led to her receiving a contract from AHRQ that’s over $1M and includes collaborators from Georgetown University, Sports Medicine, Human Factors, and many others!”

The SPIRIT Award is given to recognize and reward one associate (management or non-management) each quarter, who excels in Service, Patient First, Integrity, Respect, Innovation, and Teamwork. Nomination submissions for the second quarter of 2019 are due by May 15.
