2021 marks 45 years of research, scholarship, and practice at BUSPH.

SPH invites you to join alumni and friends on Thursday, November 18, 2021 for a fun and memorable evening to celebrate the school’s 45th year!

The Anniversary Celebration will honor the leading-edge research, educational excellence, and real-world influence BUSPH has championed in Boston and around the world.

The celebration is co-chaired by Gary Cohen (SPH ’06); Gloria Respress-Churchwell (PAR SPH’18); Kevin Churchwell (PAR SPH’18); Susan Garfield (SPH ’11); and John Sullivan (MET ’82).

SPH will also be recognizing three outstanding organizations with our Beyond Health Award, an award presented to those who have made a lasting contribution to creating the conditions that make populations healthy so that all can live full lives. This year our Beyond Health Awardees are Massachusetts’s Immigration & Refugee Advocacy Coalition (MIRA), Mother’s Out Front, and Rosie’s Place.

All attendees will be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test and proof of vaccination to attend.

To attend or support the Anniversary Celebration, please donate today. For questions, please contact sphdar@bu.edu
