Marian Miller Hamburg, Lifetime Achievement Award

Dr. Marian Miller Hamburg, you have illuminated the field of public health. Your career has been like a symphony with many movements - you have worked as a U.S.O. program director during WWII, a public school teacher, an advisor of American Public Health Association, and even a representative to the United Nations. As a member of the NYU community, you established the Department of Health Education, as well as the first graduate program in human sexuality in the nation. Throughout your illustrious career, you transformed health education in communities and schools and set the standard for school health and sex education programs around the world. Today, we celebrate your pioneering brilliance and bestow upon you the Steinhardt Lifetime Achievement Award.
