Sixty-two Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health students and alumni were inducted into the Delta Omega Honor Society of Public Health in a ceremony on May 21. The new inductees – 58 graduating students and four alumni — will be part of the Alpha Chapter of the Delta Omega, which connects Johns Hopkins public health students, alumni and faculty to develop leadership that advances and sustains the public’s health. Joining the latest group inductees were two faculty members and 10 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 over 100 chapters with over 20,000 members.
