Dechen Wangmo, MPH ' '07, has trekked above 12,000 feet to bring public health to the most remote areas of her native country. See the Alumni Spotlight in the Fall 2010 Yale Public Health magazine.
The Office of Alumni Affairs facilitates the participation of over 5,000 School of Public Health alumni in the life of the School. The office develops and implements programs which sustain an active alumni network and strengthens institutional relationships. The office connects YSPH alumni to our students, faculty and administration. Serving as an agent between alumni and students has increased opportunities for student internships and jobs after graduation.
In addition, the office administers the Association of Yale Alumni in Public Health (AYAPH), which comprises graduates of both the MPH and doctoral programs.
The organization was established to support and promote the professional needs and contributions of alumni. The AYAPH is led by a volunteer board of directors. The work of the AYAPH is carried out in collaboration with the Office of Alumni Affairs through its president, executive officers and nine working committees. There is also alumni representation through on the Dean's Leadership Council, YSPH Diversity Committee, Association of the Yale Alumni Assembly and Alumni Fund.
