The Master of Public Health (MPH) program turned 20 years old this week, celebrating the milestone with a symposium and dinner celebration on February 20, 2020. A dynamic program of education, research, and service, the mission of the Public Health program is to prepare students to develop, implement, and evaluate authentic solutions to community health problems that promote and protect the health of diverse populations. Our renowned affiliated hospitals include University Hospitals, the Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth and the Veterans Administration, and we partner closely with local health departments, community organizations, and safety-net providers to maximize students’ learning opportunities.
The day-long symposium featured morning lectures and panel discussions from renowned public health educators. Later that evening, over 150 faculty, staff, students, alumni and donors attended a celebratory banquet and honored Dr. Scott Frank, the program’s founder and director whose vision for population health training is embedded in his equity equation: everybody=anyone; Be bold and do what people need most.
