Celebrating 30 Years of Excellence in Epidemiology
BUSPH Epidemiology Doctoral Program
1:30 pm OCTOBER 17, 2014
72 East Concord Street, 14th Floor
This fall marks the 30th anniversary of the BUSPH doctoral program in Epidemiology. In 1984, the first group of doctoral students in the Department of Epidemiology began their journey towards understanding the causes of diseases in human populations. Since then, the program has become a key component in upholding the mission of the School to improve the health of local, national, and international populations by training our students to become independent, productive, and creative research scientists in the field of epidemiology. In celebration of this important accomplishment, we invite our doctoral program alumni and supporters to join us for a special symposium where faculty and students will come together to reflect on our past and to discuss the future of epidemiology.
Theodore Colton Fellowship Fund in Epidemiology
The Theodore Colton Fellowship Fund in Epidemiology will provide support for doctoral students in the Department of Epidemiology at Boston University School of Public Health. To inspire giving to the fellowship fund, Colton has announced a matching gift challenge: he will generously match additional contributions to the fund, dollar for dollar, up to a total of $20,000. Please help us to achieve this important goal!
