Women Changemakers of Berkeley Public Health

This year, as part of a UC Berkeley-wide commemoration of 150 Years of Women, the School of Public Health celebrated women changemakers who exemplify the best of our School with a special web feature.

On December 10, we hosted an online event to highlight the achievements of some of Berkeley Public Health’s most accomplished alumnae, including Jane Garcia (CEO of La Clínica de la Raza), Julie Gerberding (former head of the CDC, current Chief Patient Officer at Merck), Meredith Minkler (longtime faculty member and community-based participatory research pioneer), and Eveline Shen (CEO of Forward Together and reproductive justice leader). It was a powerful discussion, touching on women’s pathways to leadership; the work/life balance; and the power of female mentorship and encouragement.
