Faculty & Staff Profiles
Part-Time Assistant Professor
Lake Shore Campus
After a challenging undergraduate at Loyola University Chicago and a graduate degree in history during the 1960s, I went to Brazil as a Peace Corps volunteer, returned, and got into health at the Lung Association and the American Cancer Society. Then, I started one of the first hospital-based community health promotion programs in the U.S. Next, I worked at the American Medical Association for 10 years. I have always been interested in global health, so after “retiring,” I have been teaching global health at University of Illinois-Chicago and Loyola. I am also active with American Public Health Association and the American Heart Association.
BS in Social Science, Loyola University Chicago
MA in History, Indiana University
