More than 50 people gathered at Touro University Farragut Inn in Vallejo to honor six recipients chosen as this year’s Public Health Heroes.
These are Touro students and officials who have demonstrated “significant contributions and a commitment to public health service and research,” according to a school announcement.
The College of Education and Health Sciences Public Health Program selected six members representing Touro students, faculty and community members as the “2014 Public Health Heroes.”
“All our recipients are visionaries who stand at the intersection of health and the well-being of our communities with a focus on underserved populations,” said Touro’s Western Division Senior Provost and CEO Shelley Berkley in a prepared statement.
