Public Health Scholarship Honors Dedicated Alumna
The Rollins School of Public Health has established the Dr. Kathleen R. Miner Scholarship Fund for Public Health Excellence. The scholarship fund honors Miner 79MPH, who for thirty years has dedicated herself to the public health field at Emory and beyond, for her commitment, leadership, and service.
Miner was one of Emory’s first faculty members in behavioral science and health education. As associate dean and director of the Office of Applied Public Health, Miner strives to prepare graduates to work on solutions for entire communities—to be problem solvers in action.
“I never expected to have a professor who taught me so much and took such care and interest in helping develop my career,” said Dennis Jarvis 88MPH, who is leading development of the scholarship.
The scholarship will provide an outstanding first- or second-year master of public health student who exemplifies Miner’s dedication to public health education and practice with the financial resources needed to obtain a degree.
