A note from Interim Dean Karla Zadnik

Karla Zadnik

Public health truly is everywhere. 

I knew something about the breadth of public health’s reach coming into my interim dean role, having spent decades on prevention work aimed at understanding and preventing nearsightedness — work that is clearly about optometry, my primary discipline, but is, at its core, about public health. 

After spending four months in Cunz Hall, I have an even deeper appreciation of the ways in which our public health and health care administration alumni, scholars, and students are bringing their expertise to bear in multiple disciplines and arenas.

This semester’s digital magazine further highlights the far-reaching nature of public health. It is chock full of stories about terrific public health and health care practitioners and students, and I recommend you read them all. But I’ll offer a few highlights:

I hope you enjoy learning about these members of your CPH community and many more in this fall’s issue of the College of Public Health Magazine!
