The E. Richard Brown Social Justice Award
A new fund to foster the next generation of health policy leaders has been set up and donations are now being accepted in honor of the late E. Richard Brown, the Center's founding director.
Brown, who passed away on April 20, 2012, was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, teacher, mentor and public health visionary who touched the lives of tens of thousands of Americans with his unique blend of warmth, intelligence, tenacity and belief that public health data and information could be a powerful force for good.
