A Century of Saving Lives

Centennial Highlights

Launched in June of 2015, the Bloomberg School's Centennial runs through 2016. The diverse itinerary of exciting and informative activities have included more than 170 Centennial dinners around the world, department celebrations, a second book on the School’s history, a glimpse into the future of public health and a once-in-a-century party to celebrate 100 years of public health innovation and impact! 

Here are some highlights from the Centennial year.

Department Celebrations

Each of the School’s ten departments and the MPH Program were featured during one month of the Centennial year. Centennial-focused events and activities showcased their unique histories and accomplishments.

From International Health—the first academic unit of its kind in the world—to Health, Behavior and Society, the School’s newest department, the celebrations provided a panoramic perspective across public health disciplines.
