The Herbert Rosenkranz Prize is named after the (interim) dean of Pitt Public Health who established this competition over twenty years ago. In honor of his dedication to improving student research, this prize recognizes creative contribution to public health research, practice, or education and is annually awarded to the project judged to have the most significant contribution to the public health field.
Andrea Casas (EPI '21) won this year's award for the poster The Impact of Public Housing Revnovation Policies on the Frequency of Violent Crime in Pittsburgh, PA from 1990-2015.
Dean's Day is an annual student research competition. Students present their research during multiple poster sessions while faculty members judge presentations for prizes, alumni and others in the Pitt Public Health community learn about the work, and students evaluate posters for Grand Rounds credit.
