Public Health Alumni Network (PHAN) Board Seeking Nominations!

The PHAN Board is seeking nominations to fill a select number of vacancies within its membership. It is an exciting time for PHAN, as the Dornsife School of Public Health is growing and expanding leaps and bounds. As the school grows, so does its association of alumni, a distinguished group of leaders in the healthcare space.

Focused on serving the needs of the school and its alumni base, the Board seeks to support the Dornsife Public Health Alumni Network by fostering connections between our base of more than 1800 alumni, helping to provide professional development and leadership opportunities, aiding the Dornsife School of Public Health in its endeavors, and supporting activities in service to the public good.

We welcome and encourage all alumni who are interested in serving on the board to submit a nomination or self-nomination. Nominations are accepted on an ongoing basis. Select candidates will receive interview invitations and final PHAN Board decisions in the fall. New members will join the PHAN board in January.
