We owe much of the success of Rollins’ Behavioral Sciences and Health Education Department to Virginia “Genie” DeHaan (1927-1988), an outstanding faculty member and public health champion. Genie was part of Rollins’ MPH program from the beginning.

As a faculty member, her diligent work fostered a smooth initial accreditation process for the school. She also pioneered the development of the Health Promotion and Education Track, and chaired the search to hire our first Health Education faculty member.

She was active in the mental health community and devoted much of her personal time to garnering resources for those who were mentally ill.

Students and faculty enjoyed limitless access to her guidance, support, and gentle advice.The Virginia S. DeHaan Lecture on Health Promotion and Education honors Genie’s memory by bringing a preeminent scholar to Rollins.
