Soledad: The Humanitarian

Soledad: The Humanitarian

CNN anchor and special correspondent Soledad O’Brien was presented with the inaugural Goodermote Humanitarian Award November 18 at the Bloomberg School. O’Brien (pictured with Dean Michael J. Klag, left, and Dean Goodermote) was recognized for her coverage of natural disasters such as the 2004 Asian tsunami, which killed and displaced more than 200,000 people, and Hurricane Katrina, which devastated New Orleans in August 2005. The Goodermote Humanitarian Award was established by Dean Goodermote and the Goodermote family to support the Bloomberg School’s training and education mission and to honor the commitment of the School’s alumni to advancing public health worldwide. In addition to the award, the Goodermote family has established a scholarship for students committed to addressing the needs of displaced people and to furthering the mission of the School’s Center for Refugee and Disaster Response.
