Faculty of Health Sciences Newsletter
For Better Public Health

For the fifth year in a row, FHS alumna Rana Barazi-Tabbara, MD, MPH, has created our season's greetings card. Titled "The many faces of public health", Rana's 2019 art piece, inspired by the recent uprising in Lebanon, emphasizes the poignant aspects of the people's protests over the persistent and ever increasing inequities in their lives. The piece depicts a multitude of faces protruding from a white background. Two of these faces are two different trees symbolizing a shift towards more prosperity and equitable distribution of the nation’s resources among its population. White dominates the art piece because much is unknown and uncertain inspiring hope, new beginnings, and endless opportunities for change and creativity.

#FHSers' Perspective

“The MPH-HMP program does an exceptional job in preparing its candidates for careers in health management, policy and research because of three distinct elements: (i) the rich curriculum that fosters knowledge about the complexity of health care systems in Lebanon, the region, and the world; (ii) the methodological toolkit that promotes analytical skills and critical thinking; and (iii) the systems-thinking and interdisciplinary approach that stimulates collaboration between and among students and faculty across different fields in a productive environment. On a more personal level, the FHS community nurtured life-long friendships among its graduates
