Pedro Sancha Joins UM’s School of Public Health’s Dean’s Advisory Board
Pedro Sancha, President, CEO and Director of NSF, has joined the University of Michigan School of Public Health’s Dean’s Advisory Board.
The Dean’s Advisory Board is made up of Michigan Public Health alumni and other public health and industry leaders who support the school’s mission and provide advice and counsel to the dean. Among other things, the volunteer board members serve the school by communicating about and advocating for the school’s mission to a broad audience and facilitating connections to individuals, corporations, foundations, and decision makers and policymakers with interest in public health issues.
“It’s an honor to join this council of advisors who do such important work,” said Pedro Sancha, President and CEO of NSF. “The University of Michigan acted as an incubator for NSF, which is now – almost 80 years later – a thriving global enterprise. We’re proud to stay connected to our alma mater as we work together to tackle public health issues impacting our world.”
Prior to Sancha joining the board, Stan Hazan, MPH ‘08, former Senior Director of Science and Regulatory Affairs for NSF, served on the Dean’s Advisory Board for more than seven years.
“We are thrilled to have Pedro join our Dean’s Advisory Board and welcome his unique perspectives related to environmental health, global public health, and more,” said F. DuBois Bowman, dean of Michigan Public Health. “We are also grateful to Stan for his many years of service to the school. Since NSF’s founding at Michigan Public Health nearly 80 years ago, NSF and the school have enjoyed a strong relationship, and I look forward to what we will accomplish together in the future.”
