A gift of more than $1 million from the Don S. Levin Trust and Edna and Mr. Tom Gordon has established the Paul Torrens Chair in Healthcare Management at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. The endowed chair is named in honor of Dr. Paul Torrens, a professor emeritus who has been on the school’s faculty since 1972 and has taught and mentored numerous individuals who went on to become key figures in the field of healthcare management.
The Paul Torrens Chair in Healthcare Management will support the teaching and research activities of a faculty member with healthcare management expertise. The chair is based within the Fielding School’s newly launched Center for Healthcare Management and the school’s Department of Health Policy and Management.
“We are grateful to the Don S. Levin Trust and Edna and Tom Gordon for their visionary gift to endow the Paul Torrens Chair in Healthcare Management, which will contribute to the recruitment and retention of top Fielding School faculty for years to come,” said Dr. Ron Brookmeyer, interim dean of the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. “Paul Torrens has influenced the careers of generations of healthcare management professionals. This transformative gift ensures that his impact will continue well into the future.”
