Nkhoma was not able to accept the award at the the School of Public Healthâ??s annual awards banquet on May 6, because she was working on her doctorate in epidemiology at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill as a University Fellow; however, her father, Christopher Nkhoma, accepted the award for her.
