The Physician as Activist and Public Health Leader A memorial to celebrate Alan Berkman, MD (1945 – 2009) Vice Chair, Department of Epidemiology Associate Professor of Epidemiology and Sociomedical Sciences
As a teacher, scholar, mentor, AIDS physician, and crusader for social justice, Dr. Berkman touched the lives of countless individuals, and in so doing enriched and improved them. His sustained passion and outrage in the face of social injustice was balanced by his unfailing interpersonal tolerance, gentleness and generosity. His moral courage and strength in the face of adversity continue to be an inspiration to us all. Please join us for this very special celebration, featuring video of Alan’s life as an activist and words about Alan’s work and character from Wafaa El-Sadr, Ezra Susser, Robert Remien, Quarraisha Abdool-Karim, Ameena Goga, Faluke Salu, David Hoos and Francine Cournos.
Reception to follow.
