NEH grant to Center for History and Ethics of Public Health at Columbia's Mailman School
Date:1/6/2010

January 5, 2010 -- The National Endowment for Humanities (NEH) has awarded a Challenge Grant to The Center for the History and Ethics of Public Health at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health. The Challenge grant in the amount of $725,000 will help extend the Center's intellectual mission to bring the insights of the humanities to bear on understanding the challenges facing public health through knowledge of its political, social cultural, and economic roots. This is the first NEH Challenge Grant given to a school of public health and the first NEH Challenge grant awarded to Columbia University in a decade.

The Center for the History and Ethics of Public Health, created in 2002, is co-directed by David Rosner, PhD and Ronald Bayer, PhD. The only program in history and ethics within an accredited school of public health, the Center is housed in the Department of Sociomedical Sciences, led by Amy L. Fairchild, PhD, chair. The Center presents a unique collaboration of historians and those involved in the examination of the ethics of public health. Students and faculty rely on historical methods and ethical analysis to investigate critical and complex public health issues.

Until now, the Center's faculty has primarily focused its teaching and research on public health in the U.S., undertaking pioneering work on the history of environmental and occupational hazards, the ethics of public health surveillance and childhood immunization and the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The Center has been vital in developing the field of public health ethics and has made protecting vulnerable populations a priority.

Recipients of Challenge grants are required to match NEH funds and the Challenge grant awarded to The Center for History and Ethics of Public Health will set the stage for a $3,000,000 endowment campaign for the Center to support a junior faculty chair, an annual lecture and seminar series, and doctoral students.
