“Whether we are faculty, staff, administrators or leaders all of us are part of the fabric of the College of Public Health which enables us to do the work that we do. That which helps us grow and improve lives. I’m very proud to be here and incredibly proud of USF Health,” COPH Dean Donna Petersen said.

A tradition for the COPH, the Annual Length of Service Awards, began as a simple gesture in 2009. This year 39 faculty and staff members were honored.

“We are all impacted by whatever you do.  Directly from those of us that get to work with you and then indirectly in what you do to contribute to the college,” Petersen said. “I end this day on a very positive and optimistic note for the future because we have great scholars, professionals and champions here to fight for what’s good and right in this community and around the world.”
