Public Health Program receives 7 Year Accreditation from the Council on Education for Public Health Board of Councilors

A Message from Dr. Marilyn Hopkins, 
Provost & Chief Operating Officer

I am pleased to report that our Public Health Program has been accredited for 7 years by the Council on Education for Public Health Board of Councilors.   

Our past program director, Dr. Assefaw Ghebrekidan,  and our new program Director, Gayle Cummings, led the self-study process with distinction, and faculty and staff responded with professional expertise and exceptional commitment .   

Students, alumni, preceptors, employers, and community representatives created an energetic coalition that impressed the site visitors and showcased program strengths highlighted in the report. 

Let’s celebrate their achievement and work as a campus to integrate public health concepts and expertise into our academic programs and community work!
