As you may have heard, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is once again ranked No. 1 among schools of public health in the nation according to U.S. News & World Report. Our School has been consistently rated #1 in the Best Graduate Schools guide for many years.
We owe our reputation as the leader in public health education and research to the hard work and dedication of each of you to our School's mission of protecting health, saving lives—millions at a time. I want to thank you all and congratulate you on this very impressive achievement. Ratings are a wonderful affirmation of our reputation. Even more important, however, are the wonderful community and sense of collegiality that we share.
