Gift from former Dean Bloom supports financial aid

Winter 2012 ]

Barry R. Bloom, Harvard University Distinguished Service Professor and Joan L. and Julius H. Jacobson Professor of Public Health, made a gift to complete the endowment for the Barry R. and Irene Tilenius Bloom Fellowship Fund at Harvard School of Public Health. A group of Bloom’s friends and colleagues, with other supporters, created the fund following the end of his 10-year tenure as dean in 2008. The fund provides critical financial aid—one of Bloom’s priorities as dean—that can transform a student’s vision of a public health career into a reality. Recipients will be selected on academic merit, leadership potential, and commitment to improving public health in fields and areas of the world in greatest need.
