Public Health faculty member Dr. Brenda Joly was recently awarded tenure and promotion to Professor at the March 2020 University of Maine System Board of Trustees meeting. The Muskie School congratulates Dr. Joly on this significant achievement. We are so proud of her success! Her teaching accomplishments, research productivity, and service to her professional community warrant this well-earned honor. Brenda remarked “I feel privileged to be working at USM with colleagues I admire and teaching students that are eager to build skills in public health. As a tenured professor, I see my teaching and research trajectory focusing on how we strengthen our public health system and the interventions we implement to improve health outcomes.”
The Muskie School offers Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) accredited undergraduate Bachelor of Science in Public Health (BSPH) and graduate Master of Public Health (MPH) degrees. Both programs are aimed at introducing students to the history and core concepts of public health and bridging public health and health care delivery systems to build integrated, high functioning health and public health systems, engaging individuals, communities, and providers in the development and management of a more effective and sustainable health infrastructure.
