Director’s Message

Dear SPPH Community,

Happy New Year! I am delighted to be the one to welcome you back for what I anticipate will be an exciting and promising 2019 and beyond. I am honored to join you as of today as the new Director of SPPH. My heartfelt appreciation goes to our several interim directors  –  Profs Chris Lovato, Carolyn Gotay, Mieke Koehoorn, and Craig Mitton as well as to Shannon Charney and our great admin team. I have already benefitted much from their guidance and from that of the many faculty who I have had the pleasure of meeting. I look forward in the coming months to making many new acquaintances – students, staff, and faculty – and learning more about your important contributions to population and public health and your ambitions for the future. Together we will advance SPPH to even greater achievements.
