“The Health Advisory Board is integral to the success of the Bloomberg School and our mission. During my time as dean, I’ve come to rely upon the Board’s wisdom and guidance,” said Michael J. Klag, MD, MPH '87, dean of the Bloomberg School of Public Health.
“The Advisory Board is a unique group. Our new members bring to the table fresh perspectives and expertise from the fields of medicine, finance, education and management,” said Frank L.
