Two former deans of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health – Dr. D.A. Henderson, and Dr. Alfred Sommer – have recently been recognized for their major achievements in the field of public health.
Dr. Henderson was awarded the Prince Mahidol Award in Public Health in January, and Dr. Sommer was chosen as the inaugural recipient of the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) Welch-Rose Award for Distinguished Service to Academic Public Health. He will receive his award at the 2015 ASPPH Annual Meeting on March 23.
“Our school flourished during the 28 years of combined leadership under D.A. and Al,” says Michael J. Klag, dean of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health since 2005. “The impact of their collective research, discoveries, and achievements set a precedent for public health leaders around the world.”
