Fall 2019 Edition: Celebrating 50 Years of Public Health

The cover of the Healthviews magazine, showing an aerial view of the UIC campus with the Chicago skyline in the background.

Our Fall 2019 alumni magazine takes an in-depth look at the impact that the UIC School of Public Health has had over the past fifty years.  Our Doctor of Public Health in Leadership (DrPH) degree program is among the largest such programs in the world, due in large part to the efforts of Dr. Patrick Lenihan, who was director of the program until his retirement in 2019.

The magazine profiles the school’s Institute for Health Research and Policy, as well as the work around community engagement, including plans to launch a new Center for Engaging for Health Equity and Action.  Readers can also learn more about the work of Dr. Mark Dworkin, who is studying whether an app can help HIV patients adhere to their medications.

To receive a printed copy, email Sara Giloth, Director of Donor Relations, at sgiloth@uic.edu.
