Population, Family and Reproductive Health


Amy Ong Tui Retires December 2019 Amy Ong Tsui, PhD, MA

It is with much fondness, appreciation and awe that we celebrate the many contributions of Professor Amy Tsui who is retiring at the end of the calendar year. The impact of Amy’s many contributions can be assessed by her scholarly contributions to the field, multitude of leadership positions, and the excellence she achieved in education and in mentoring the next generation of public health scholars, both locally and globally.

Dr. Tsui joined Hopkins and has been a Professor in PFRH since 2002. She is the Senior Scholar and former Director of the Bill and Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health. Before arriving in Baltimore, Amy was Professor and Director of the University of North Carolina’s Population Center. She also served as President of the Population Association of America (2018), Elected Council Delegate of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (2012-2015), and on numerous Boards and Committees. Her contributions include serving on the Boards of the Population Council (2014-2017), the Guttmacher Institute (2012-2015) and Ipas (2004-2010, 2015-2017).

In addition to being a globally recognized leader who has advanced Population, Reproductive and Sexual Health, Amy has been recognized at BSPH for education and mentoring excellence. Her commitment to students and equally to junior faculty is exemplary. As a recipient of last year’s Dean’s Award for Distinction in Faculty Mentoring, Amy was honored for all she has done to foster the scientific, academic and career development of her many formal and informal mentees. She instilled the importance of scientific integrity, educational excellence, and the achievement of each person’s professional goals. As one former mentee wrote “She has such a unique combination of qualities—outstanding intellect, modesty, a deep sense of fairness, an incredible work ethic, and a quite leadership style --- that make her the extraordinary woman, scholar, professor and mentor that she is.”

Kudos to Amy! We wish you the best of the next phase of your life’s adventures and look forward to celebrating your many accomplishments later this Spring.
