Virginia S. DeHaan Lecture on Health Promotion and Education

DeHaan Lecture 2014

The Virginia S. DeHaan Lecture on Health Promotion and Education honors the memory of an outstanding faculty member of the public health community. The Lecture was established to bring national visibility to the Rollins School of Public Health of Emory University through the generous support of Genie's family, friends and students.

Virginia S. DeHaan (1927-1988) graduated in the Rollins School of Public Health MPH class of 1977. She was immediately recruited into the faculty and became an invaluable part of the program's development. Students and faculty peers enjoyed limitless access to her support, guidance and gentle advice. Her diligent work fostered a smooth initial accreditation process for the school and she pioneered the development of the Health Promotion and Education Track.
