The faculty inductees, who were selected based on their achievements in public health research, policy and education, were Dr. Daniel J. Whitaker, professor of Health Promotion & Behavior, and honorary member Dr. Christina Hemphill Fuller, Assistant Professor of Environmental Health.
Dr. Whitaker serves as the Director of the National SafeCare Training and Research Center. His research interests focus on family violence including child maltreatment prevention and intimate partner violence prevention, with an interest in intervention research and implementation science.
Dr. Fuller’s research interests include outdoor air pollution, the effects of air pollution on respiratory and cardiovascular health, community-engaged research, urban health and environmental justice.
The School also inducted 10 students and 4 alumni into Delta Omega this spring.
The Delta Omega Honorary Society was founded in 1924 at Johns Hopkins University to promote the study of public health, which at the time was a relatively new field.
The Gamma Upsilon Chapter at the School of Public Health at Georgia State was established in 2014 to recognize its students and public health professionals who are dedicated to advancing the wellbeing of all people.
