The Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2020. The college’s creation helped bring all of the University of Arizona’s existing public health studies together in one place.
“Today we stand as a recognized leader in public health. We have grown the college into an ecosystem of centers and programs, research and education, promotion and outreach that has improved health and wellness for millions of people,” said college Dean Iman Hakim, MD, PhD, MPH.
Looking back at that history provides a sense of accomplishment Dr. Hakim said.
“Our public health expertise and education has had measurable benefits for our communities in the region, for the University of Arizona and Health Sciences, for the City of Tucson, for Pima County and for the State of Arizona. And our role is now more vital and visible than ever,” said Dr. Hakim.
