This award is among the most prestigious awards University of California faculty members can receive from their colleagues. The award recognizes several years of Lisa’s exemplary contributions to her profession and to our university, and most importantly for her roles as a founding faculty member in the Program in Public Health, where she currently serves as Vice Chair of the Department of Population Health and Disease Prevention.
We mourn the loss of Dr. Terry Schmidt who died on June 30th 2019. No funeral services will be held as that was Terry's wish. Feel free to visit the online memorial site to express condolences
Dr. Bruckner brings a wealth of pertinent experience to this role, having served previously as director of an interdisciplinary doctoral training program in another school, interim director of our M.P.H. program, and Chair of our Curriculum Committee.
Please join us to congratulate Dr. Bruckner on his new role at this critical juncture for Public Health at UC Irvine, and to thank Dr. Scott Bartell for his directorship of our Ph.D. in Public Health. His work was recognized by current Ph.D. Public Health students with an award of a mini surf board at the 2019 Graduate Honors and Awards Ceremony.
