OSU-CHS professor receives U.S. Department of State award for service
Dr. Anil K. Kaul, director of clinical laboratories and associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences, recently received the Expeditionary Service Award from the United States Department of State.
The service award is presented to employees in the U.S. State Department who serve in designated field locations. Kaul, who served as a senior health advisor in Iraq for the U.S. Department of State, received the award for providing successful service in an arduous and difficult field location. The award included a certificate signed by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a lapel pin.
"This award is presented in grateful recognition of your committed service in extraordinary and arduous conditions during your field assignment in Iraq," Clinton wrote on the certificate. "In spite of constant danger and difficulty, your contribution to reconstruction, stability and peace reflect great credit on yourself and on the U.S. Department of State."
Kaul earned his medical degree from Madras Medical College of Madras University and dental degree from King Georges Medical College, both in India, and his master's in public health administration from the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. Kaul joined the faculty at OSU Center for Health Sciences in 2007.
