One hundred fourteen Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health students, faculty and alumni were inducted into the Delta Omega Honor Society of Public Health in a ceremony held at the Bloomberg School on May 20. The new inductees — 101 graduating students, four faculty members and nine alumni — will be part of the Alpha Chapter of Delta Omega, which connects Johns Hopkins public health students, faculty and alumni to develop leadership that advances and sustains the public’s health. Joining the latest group of inductees were 13 Johns Hopkins University undergraduates.
Delta Omega was founded in 1924 at the Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health (now the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health) to promote excellence and to recognize accomplishments in scholarship and research. Since the establishment at Johns Hopkins of the Alpha Chapter, the Society has expanded nationally to more than 100 chapters with over 20,000 members.Tags: Friday Letter Submission
