The Latest News from the World of Public Health

Profiles by Mike Field

BALTIMORE
Gerard Anderson
Health Policy and Management Professor Gerard Anderson was recently voted one of the 100 “most powerful people in healthcare” by the readers of Modern Healthcare magazine.

PITTSBURGH
Devra Davis

In 1948, a thermal inversion trapped smoke from a steel mill and zinc smelter, creating the smog that killed at least 20 people and sickened thousands.
The landmark incident also prompted Devra Davis, MPH ’82, a two-year-old Donora native at the time of the tragedy, to write When Smoke Ran Like Water.

UGANDA
Nosa Orobaton
In Africa, where the full force of the AIDS epidemic has hit hardest, governments and service providers have come to recognize the need for urgent, coordinated action through a broad spectrum of entities. Nosa Orobaton, MPH ’90, DrPH ’95, is a leading advocate for this new approach.

SINAI DESERT
Sam Ruben
It is 11 time zones and more than 7,000 miles from the redwood forests of the Oregon coast to the sands of the Sinai desert. For the soldiers of Oregon’s 1st Battalion, 186th Infantry Army National Guard unit, it wasn’t just the distance that proved challenging. It was, they found, like being on a whole new planet.

MYANMAR
Thein Thein Htay

In the nine months Thein Thein Htay, MHS ’00, spent studying in Baltimore, she remembers sleeping only about four hours a night. “There was so much to learn,” says Htay, who has the distinction of being the first Gates Scholar to graduate from the School.
