The College of Public Health welcomed 23 new faculty this fall. Joining our team are:
Meghan Rainone, Assistant Professor. Meghan holds her J.D. from Temple University and was previously an Adjunct Professor here at Temple.
Dr. Anjali Shah, PhD, Assistant Professor. Anjali earned a PhD in Biomedical Informatics from Rutgers University and previously worked with the Rutgers Biomedical Health Sciences team.
Dean Laura A. Siminoff, Ph.D. and the entire community of the College of Public Health mourn the loss of Dr. Curtis A. Leonard. Dr. Leonard was appointed Dean of the School of Social Administration by then President Peter Liacouras in 1994 and held that position until 2002. He passed away two days before his 75th birthday on August 16, 2014.
A champion of educational access and excellence, Dr. Leonard is remembered for his over 40 years of service to his students and his community. He was as a strong, forward-thinking leader who loved Temple University and all those that passed through its doors.
Dean Laura Siminoff, Ph.D. is pleased to congratulate the following CPH faculty who were recently awarded tenure and promotion upon the recommendation of Temple University’s President, Dr. Neil D. Theobald, by the Board of Trustees and by action of the President.
The Center for Social Policy and Community Development has partnered with the College of Education to provide "
support to neighborhood schools and assist high school students as they prepare for college or the workforce after graduation".
"“Communities are about more than the bricks and mortar,” said Shirley Moy, co-director of the Center for Social Policy and Community Development. “In order to make real changes you have to help the entire community; this is a comprehensive approach to creating a more cohesive neighborhood.”
Sachs to The Atlantic:
“If your life seems to revolve around making sure that your streak continues, then I don’t know that that’s necessarily a good thing,” Sachs says. He says he thinks researchers should investigate addiction as it relates to streak running."
On Thursday, May 15, 2014 Temple University's College of Public Health officially celebrated the graduation of the class of 2014. Over 5,000 guests filled the Liacouras Center to celebrate the near 1,500 graduates of the College.
Associate Dean of Faculty and Academic Affairs, Dr. Kathy Coyle began the proceedings by welcoming the assembled body to the celebration. "Your commitment, hard work and determination has brought you to this point and now it is time for all assembled to applaud your efforts," Coyle told the graduates. "So to each of you I say congratulations! Enjoy this moment. You're Temple Made."
