[ Winter 2011]
Friends and Colleagues Gather from around the World
In a festive annual reunion, more than 100 Harvard School of Public Health alumni returned to the School on September 24–26 to reconnect with former classmates, network, and engage with current topics in public health. At the Alumni Weekend Symposium, Hamish Fraser, of Partners in Health, told attendees about the impact of building e-health systems in developing countries. Harvard Humanitarian Initiative Director Michael VanRooyen discussed academic and research engagement in war and conflict. And Leo Celi, MPH ’10, described Sana wireless technology, a groundbreaking project that he and other members of the HSPH class of 2010 developed to strengthen health systems in resource poor settings.

The award is given each year to up to four individuals whose leadership, community service, contributions, and commitment to the field of public health exemplify the School’s ideals. Attendees also celebrated with brunch and camaraderie the 50th anniversary of Shattuck International House.
