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.
