Health Advisory Board
Meet Our Members


The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health's Advisory Board was established in 1981 to provide a dialogue between external audiences and the School's Dean and faculty. The activities and interests of the Board include all areas of the School's work. The Board's diverse membership includes University Trustees, alumni, and friends from corporations, foundations, private organizations, and those with specific interests in the School's research, education, and professional practice programs.

The relationship between the deans and faculty of the School and the members of the Advisory Board has been a unique and catalytic one. The Advisory Board has worked with the School to create new programs, to support key initiatives, and to offer critical advice and counsel on the wide variety of efforts.


The mission of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Advisory Board is fourfold:

  1. To bring diverse insights and expertise to bear on issues critical to the success of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health;
  2. To increase the School’s resources and base of support;
  3. To serve as an advocacy arm for the School, apprising the private and public sectors of the School’s educational, research, service and consultative capacities; and
  4. To present the School’s interests and concerns to the University’s Board of Trustees.
