Dr. Peggy Leatt, emeritus professor and chair of health policy and management at the Gillings School, retired in 2013, after a long and successful career as a visionary leader, beloved teacher and mentor, and innovative scholar.

Her biggest admirer (and husband), Dr. George Pink, Humana Distinguished Professor of health policy and management at the School, now has established The Peggy Leatt Fellowship to honor her work.

“Her students were always Peggy’s priority,” Pink says. “She invested much of her energy in improving health policy and management education and the student experience at the Gillings School, particularly for minority students. That’s why I believe the fellowship will be such an important legacy for her.”
