BCHS MPH student Jennifer Sloan selected for Green award

Jennifer Sloan, a first-year MPH student, receives the William T. Green Jr. Award in Public Health Studies for her project entitled "Birmingham Free Clinic Integrated Health Services Program."

The William T. Green Jr. Award in Public Health Studies honors of one of GSPH’s outstanding alumni, William T. Green Jr. A graduate of Harvard Medical School, Green came to Pittsburgh in 1970 as assistant professor of orthopedic surgery in the School of Medicine. In 1988, his interest in the pressure of rising costs of health care led him to the executive MBA program at Pitt’s Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business. After his retirement from medicine, he pursued his long-time interest in public health by enrolling at GSPH, graduating in 2001 with a multidisciplinary master of public health (MMPH). Upon completion of his GSPH degree, Green became active with the school’s Alumni Society and was elected as president for 2003-04, during which time he was also GSPH’s representative to the Pitt Alumni Association board. In 2005, he was awarded the Pitt Alumni Association’s Volunteer Excellence Award in recognition of his outstanding volunteer service to both GSPH’s and the University’s alumni organizations.

Purpose and Amount of Award

The Green award was established to support special student projects that would not otherwise be implemented due to financial restrictions, and it is available annually to eligible students through a competitive application process. Any degree-seeking student enrolled in GSPH is eligible to apply. The award is open-ended in terms of use and may be applied towards expenditures such as direct research costs, travel, books, and memberships.
