Letter from Delta Omega Alpha Chapter President, Keshia Pollack, PhD '06, MPH

Dear Delta Omega Alpha Chapter member,

As I sit here writing the first of many letters to you as President of the Alpha Chapter of the Delta Omega Public Health Honor Societylet me take a moment and say how honored I am to serve in this role. I was in college in the 1990s when my public health moment happened. At the time, I was one of the few undergraduate students in the U.S. with an opportunity to study public health. I completed a Certificate in Public Health (it was not a degree program yet!) through courses in health policy, epidemiology, and international health, and I was hooked! Now, as a researcher, teacher, advisor, and public health practitioner, I get to use tools such as injury epidemiology and health impact assessments to advance policies that create safe and healthy environments where people live, work, play, and travel. The work of public health is meaningful and fun.

The fun is why I am very much looking forward to my two-year term as President of the Alpha Chapter. This is an opportunity to revitalize and reinvigorate a group of public health leaders. I am excited to continue working with the Board to build on the great work that we began under the leadership of Carolyn Fowler, the prior Chapter president.  And as we look ahead to the fall, there are a few exciting things that I want to draw to your attention:
