Dr. Karen Mundy-Judkins, professor of sociology at Lee University, was selected as a fellow for Alpha Kappa Delta International Sociology Honor Society during the October 2013 Mid-South Sociological Society meetings in Atlanta.

“It is a great honor to be selected as an AKD fellow,” said Mundy-Judkins.

Mundy-Judkins specializes in medical sociology and epidemiology. Her original work in medical sociology was a comparative study of hospitals, including the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga teaching hospital.

She has continued postdoctoral work in medical sociology and epidemiology at Johns Hopkins University and Duke University, and her current research involves the impact of new health care policies within the medical profession and its teaching institutions.

Mundy-Judkins, sponsor of Lee’s AKD Theta chapter, recently participated in the AKD Teaching and Learning Symposium in Atlanta.

In addition to her teaching and research, Mundy-Judkins is a hospital chaplain in Chattanooga hospitals.

AKD was founded by Emory Borgardus at the University of Southern California in 1915. It has 630-plus chapters globally, and is affiliated with the American Sociological Society. Chapters must meet standards of eligibility, requiring sociology faculty with doctorates in sociology and a high-level sociology curriculum.
