Welcome alumni to our Summer 2019 edition of E-mailman newsletter! With this issue, I would like to share that the our alumni have been busy making an impact across public health through written publications, inspiring young graduates, and fighting infectious disease. I encourage you to send us your or your peers’ accomplishments to highlight in our Class Notes section. I know there are more of you out there doing great things.
The Alumni Board has also transitioned to a new executive board. Carlos Cuevas, MPA, MPH ’12 serves as President and Anette Wu, MD, MPH ’08 serves as Vice President. Carlos previously served as Vice President and Chair of the Development Committee. Anette was our past Special Events Committee chair and currently chairs the Columbia Alumni Association’s (CAA) Programs Committee. As I welcome and congratulate them on their leadership positions I also want to remind alumni that you don’t need to be on the alumni board to be part of alumni efforts. There are several committees to join, which can be found here. This newsletter, in particular, would not exist without the alumni who have volunteered their time and voice to write on important issues and guidance to alumni.
Lastly, I would like to announce that I will be passing the Editor torch to Hanna Rosenzweig, MPH ’05, as the new editor of E-Mailman. Hannah has been instrumental in the development of E-mailman and has been part of the team from its beginning and part of the Alumni Board since 2011. Her public health and strategic media background will be helpful as she takes E-mailman to its next stage.
Congratulations to the class of 2019! I hope you have all enjoyed our newsletter and our strides to bring our alumni together.
E-mailman Committee Chair: Amy Osorio
(Committee Members: Alison Blicharz; Anette Wu; Hannah Rosenzweig; Jennifer Fearon; Jessie Schutt-Aine; Nina Rothschild; Stacey Cameron)
