One of the questions we often get in Admissions, is what careers do students pursue after they graduate. This is always hard to answer because of how wide and varied the research, degrees, departments, concentrations and tracks are here at the Bloomberg School. However, I never thought I’d be writing an Alumni Spotlight on a Vice President.

Chien-Jen Chen graduated with his Doctor of Science in 1983 and became a well-known epidemiologist. During the 2003 SARS epidemic in Taiwan, Chen was the minister of health and it was he who implemented containment efforts and is considered a bit of a hero for suppressing the epidemic. In 2012, he received the Johns Hopkins Knowledge for the World Award for his work on arsenic and hepatitis. More recently Chen was the Vice President of Academic Sinica, much like our National Academy of Sciences.

As the new Vice President of Taiwan, public health will be a priority. For a full story about Chen, you can read the article in the Hopkins Bloomberg Public Health Summer 2016 magazine.

After a snowy, slushy February, we have sprung into March!
