Dr. Linda Rosenstock, a professor and former dean of the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, has received a Distinguished Alumni Award from the Johns Hopkins University Alumni Association.
Rosenstock is an expert in work-related health issues. As director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health from 1994 through 2000, she expanded the agency’s responsibilities and helped create a framework for conducting occupational safety and health research. Her work was recognized with the Presidential Distinguished Executive Rank Award.
Most recently, Rosenstock co-authored an article published in the American Journal of Public Health that described how income inequality is affecting the health of U.S. workers. Rosenstock is currently a professor of health policy and management and environmental health sciences in the Fielding School and professor of medicine in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
According to Johns Hopkins, the award recognizes alums who have “brought credit to the university by their personal accomplishment, professional achievement, or humanitarian service.”
