A 40-year career in public health

In April 2013, Jo Anne Earp, ScD, former chair and longtime professor of health behavior at the Gillings School, drew more than 200 current and former students, colleagues and friends to events celebrating her 40-year career in public health. Earp’s career has included 1960s activism, educating and mentoring hundreds of students, researching and advocating for women’s health, civil rights, and improved health care quality, equity and access.
