Graduates of Hadassah’s International Master’s of Public Health Program Say It Changed Their Lives

Graduates of Hadassah's International Master's of Public Health Program

"For a growing number of public health professionals from 90 countries in Africa, Southeast Asia, South America, and other parts of the developing world, the road to career success and influence runs through Jerusalem," writes Judy Siegel-Itzkovich in her Jerusalem Post article about the graduates of the International Master's of Public Health (IMPH) program at the Hadassah-Hebrew University Braun School of Public Health and Community Medicine.

Since 1971, Ms. Siegel-Itzkovich reports, more than 750 physicians, epidemiologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other medical personnel have received Hadassah's IMPH degree. Many of the IMPH alumni now have influential positions in the health systems of their native countries. Some are serving as health ministers or directors-general of health ministries.

They thank Hadassah for enabling them to alleviate disease and poverty and to promote health and development in their homelands.

Ms. Siegel-Itzkovich relates that "more than 60 alumni and almost 30 current IMPH students came to the capital's Jerusalem Gardens Hotel earlier this month for a nine-day reunion and workshop to learn about cutting-edge research in the field while exchanging professional experiences, challenges, and successes."
