Dr. Adewale Troutman becomes president of nation’s largest public health organization
“It is incredibly exciting to have someone of Dr. Troutman’s caliber and expertise leading the nation’s largest public health organization,” said Donna Peterson, ScD, dean of the USF College of Public Health. “The fact that he is also a leader at USF Health helps make the connection between his vision and ours – that health is about a lot more than health care; it is about improving lives through community engagement and deliberate preventive action.
“We look forward to seeing his vision take shape over this most important of year in our country’s health care history,” Petersen said. “We couldn’t be more delighted to have a USF Health voice at the highest levels of policy deliberation and advocacy.”
Dr. Troutman’s vision for public health was recently summarized in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s New Public Health blog.
