I’m thrilled to say that the Centennial celebration surpassed our expectations. It was a very special and very entertaining event that will be long remembered here at SPHTM. Even as we honor our longtime alumni, our students and very recent alumni are carrying that torch into the future, demonstrating their leadership in global health in a variety of ways.
