Congratulations to our international MPH program director, Professor Manfred Green, who has been recognized by the Scientific Committee of the Annual Conference of the Association of Public Health Physicians and Public Health Schools with the Lifetime Achievement Award for his work to promote public health in Israel and worldwide.
This award was given to him in June 2017 for his significant contribution to public health, epidemiology, research, teaching, and public activity over the years. This includes the establishment and management of the Israel Center for Disease Control, ongoing work with the Israeli Ministry of Health, the establishment of monitoring and research bodies, educating generations both at Tel Aviv University and the University of Haifa, creating and directing the International MPH in Global Health Leadership program, enormous contribution to the study and teaching of epidemiology in academic institutions, as well as his international status as a leading public health physician and epidemiologist.
Professors Richard and Barbara Schuster recently received their Fellowship to the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh. The award was presented to them by Professor Derek Bell, President of the RCP (Edin). Becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh is an honor bestowed on a very selected group of physicians from around the world who have demonstrated career accomplishments deserving of recognition by the RCP (Edin). Here is a blog post written by Professor Richard Schuster about the award and what it means for the MPH in Global Health Leadership & Administration Program.
