William Welch plaqueDo you know where this is?

More importantly, do you know who this is?

It’s William Henry Welch, a founder of the Bloomberg School and leader in public health. He was called “Popsy” by his friends and students and “our greatest statesman in the field of public health” by President Hoover.

You can learn more about Dr. Welch and his many accomplishments under Heroes of Public Health.

The plaque is located just inside the Wolfe Street entrance to the School of Public Health.
