Catherine Ceniza Choy, PhD, is the recipient of the Bjoring Center’s 2023 Agnes Dillon Randolph Award. This award recognizes her outstanding scholarship documenting the experiences of Filipino nurses in U.S. history and the importance of that history for understanding ongoing issues in health care, including the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on Filipino nurses in this country.

Dr. Choy is the award-winning author of Asian American Histories of the United States (2022), Global Families: A History of Asian International Adoption in America (2013), and Empire of Care: Nursing and Migration in Filipino American History (2003). Empire of Care explored how and why the Philippines became the leading exporter of professional nurses to the U.S. It received the 2003 American Journal of Nursing History and Public Policy Book Award and the 2005 Association for Asian American Studies History Book Award.

The daughter of Filipino immigrants, Dr. Choy is a professor of ethnic studies at the University of California Berkeley. An engaged public scholar, she has been interviewed and had her research cited in many media outlets, including ABC 20/20, CNN, the Los Angeles Times, NBC News, the New York Times, and the San Francisco Chronicle.
