When former Bloomberg School of Public Health Dean Michael J. Klag, MPH (SPH '87), returns from an 18-month sabbatical in early 2019, he'll be stepping into a special new position: The Second Century Distinguished Professorship.

Members of the Bloomberg School's Health Advisory Board, Bloomberg Philanthropies, and a group of generous donors and friends of Klag and his wife, Lucy A. Meoni, ScM (SPH '82), endowed the professorship to honor the couple's contributions to the school and the greater field of public health. (Meoni is a biostatistics faculty member in the school.) When Klag retires, the chair's title will become the Michael J. Klag and Lucy A. Meoni Distinguished Professorship.

"[Mike] has always made supporting the school a top priority, and everyone was pleased to have an opportunity to support Mike," said Steve Moore, MPH (SPH '93), chair of the Health Advisory Board.
