Dr. José F. Cordero named the first Gordhan L. and Virginia B. "Jinx" Patel Distinguished Professor

We are pleased to inform that Dr. José F. Cordero, former Dean of the Graduate School Of Public Health and RCMI Key Activity Director, has been named the first Gordhan L. and Virginia B. "Jinx" Patel Distinguished Professor in Public Health at the University of Georgia (UGA). Dr. Cordero joined the College of Public Health at UGA in August as professor and head of its department of epidemiology and biostatistics.

"As the state of Georgia continues to struggle with poor ratings in infant and maternal mortality, we very pleased to have one of the leading experts in child and maternal health join us at the College of Public Health", said Phillip Williams, dean of the college. "Under Dr. Cordero's guidance, the college and UGA will be able to expand its expertise in this area of critical need."

Dr. Cordero currently co-directs the PROTECT Center-the Puerto Rico Testsite for Exploring Contamination Threats-a consortium with Northeastern University, University of Michigan, University of Puerto Rico and now, UGA.

 

Congratulations to Dr. Cordero on this special recognition!
