Board of Advisors

The Mailman School of Public Health Board of Advisors is a leadership body that provides knowledge and experience from the business, government, media, and non-profit sectors to help expand the School’s reach. Advisors provide counsel and support to the Dean, serve as ambassadors among friends, associates, and colleagues, and assist in the acquisition of essential resources for advancing teaching, research, and service.
