December 12, 2023 – Faculty, staff, and academic appointees at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health gathered in Kresge Cafeteria on December 11 for a holiday party; it was a welcome return of the traditional event, which had last been held four years ago due to the pandemic.

Interim Dean Jane Kim offered welcoming remarks and introduced incoming Dean Andrea Baccarelli, who noted how wonderful it was to be back at the School, where he had previously been a faculty member. “I want to hear from all of you how we can get to the next level,” he said. “I want to be sure we design a vision for us that is exciting, that is important, that is impactful.”

Baccarelli begins his new role Jan. 1, 2024.
