Autumn 2010: Campaign Chronicle
Founding Dean, Spouse Support Public Health
The former dean of Rollins School of Public Health (RSPH) is honoring the school and his parents with a gift. A bequest from Ray and Leah Greenberg will establish the Dr. Bernard and Ruth Greenberg Fund for Biostatistics and Epidemiology.
The fund recognizes Bernard Greenberg’s legendary leadership in the fields of biostatistics and public health, and it honors the couple’s contributions to social justice.
Ray Greenberg was the founding dean of RSPH, taking the helm in 1990. In 1995 he became vice president of academic affairs and provost at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, where he now serves as president.
“I am where I am today in large part because of opportunities I received at Emory, and I was in a position to take advantage of those opportunities because of the background my parents gave to me,” he says. “This is a perfect way to express my appreciation to both my parents and to a university that as long as I live will hold a very special place in my heart.”
