Congratulations, #Yale2024!

“It is possible to feel hopeless, but I hope that you will reframe it into a message of possibility,” said Dean Megan Ranney at her first Commencement as the Dean of the Yale School of Public Health. “You, our graduates, more than anyone, have the potential to create change.”

    Pandemic proved to be a revelatory time for PhD student
