20 Days for 20 Years: Anniversary Celebration


Drachman Hall Dedication Ceremony, 2006

Join us for our “virtual” 20 Days Celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health!

Although MEZCOPH’s 20th Anniversary Gala has been cancelled, we are celebrating the College’s 20 years of achievements in a multimedia story series we are calling “20 Days for 20 Years.” This is a “virtual” celebration with 20 consecutive daily stories on our website, each day promoted on our social media channels. We are highlighting our Gala Honorees, our community partners, and the many milestones that make the College a leader in public health today. The “20 Days for 20 Years” celebration launched on Monday, October 19, 2020, with a virtual event. Please check our website and our social media on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter to celebrate with us!

Watch Dean Iman Hakim welcome the College community in this 20 Days Welcome Video for the “20 Days for 20 Years” celebration.

The 20 Days series launched on Monday, October 19 and publishes daily web stories through Saturday, November 7.
