Dean of USF Gives Presentation at Loma Linda University School of Public Health

On Monday, July 22, Dean Donna Petersen of the University of South Florida College of Public Health gave a presentation on the “Framing the Future Taskforce.”  In her presentation, Dean Petersen discussed the future of public health education and outlined its beginnings by pointing to the Welch-Rose Report as the seminal article for the current structure of public health education in the United States. “Public Health is not a profession, it is a goal,” Dr. Petersen quoted Dr. Al Sommer, dean emeritus at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and segued into the future of public health education – a topic that Dr. Petersen says can be reimagined.
