Ellen MacKenzie takes the Bloomberg School's helm as its 11th dean

Posted November 8, 2017

Ellen MacKenzie, PhD (SPH '79), MSc (SPH '75), a Bloomberg Distinguished Professor and a renowned expert in improving trauma care systems and policy, became the 11th dean of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health on Oct. 1. It marked a new chapter in MacKenzie's decades-long association with the school; she joined the faculty shortly after graduating, was promoted to full professor in 1991, and has served the school as a department chair and associate dean.

"My love for the field of public health and and the school started as a graduate student in biostatistics, and I've never looked back," MacKenzie told The Hub at the time of her appointment.

"I have been deeply impressed by Dr. MacKenzie's appreciation for today's global and local public health challenges, and by her visionary understanding of the Bloomberg School's role as a leader in confronting these challenges," President Ronald J. Daniels said.

Learn more about MacKenzie on the Bloomberg School's website, in her first column for Hopkins Bloomberg Public Health magazine, and in the magazine's exclusive Q&A with the new dean.
