The Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health recognizes Dr. Linda Rosenstock, professor and former dean at UCLA Jonathan and Karin Fielding School of Public Health, as the recipient of the 2019 Welch-Rose Award for Distinguished Service to Academic Public Health.
The ASPPH Welch-Rose Award for Distinguished Service to Academic Public Health is awarded annually to an individual for extraordinary contributions to the academic public health community. The Welch-Rose Award recognizes the highest standards in academic public health and honors individuals who have made a lasting impact on academic public health. The award also honors Drs. Wickliffe Rose and William Henry Welch whose seminal 1915 report continues to serve as a central reference point for the design of academic public health.
Dr. Rosenstock has had an exemplary career in academic public health that spans academic disciplines and organizations and a recognized authority in occupational and environmental health as well as global public health and science policy. She is the author of numerous books, reports and peer-reviewed articles and her extraordinary contributions to the academic public health field and accomplishments have been recognized over many years by multiple agencies. University of Massachusetts Amherst School of Public Health and Health Sciences dean, Dr. Marjorie Aelion said, “Dr. Rosenstock has served with distinction in leadership roles in the government and in academic public health for decades. It would be difficult to find a more exemplary record of accomplishment, not only in research but also as an administrator.”
Dr. Rosenstock will be recognized at the 2019 ASPPH Annual Meeting awards luncheon on Thursday, March 21.
Registration for the awards luncheon is required to attend.
