Brownsville Regional Dean McCormick Re-Appointed as Chancellor's Fellow
Epidemiologist Joseph B. McCormick, M.D., dean of The University of Texas School of Public Health’s Brownsville regional campus, has been appointed to an additional year as the first Chancellor’s Fellow in Public Health by University of Texas System Executive Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs Kenneth I. Shine, M.D.
“During this time Dr. McCormick can pursue the Wellness Initiative, which he has so effectively led,” Shine said. “In connection with this appointment, a grant of $25,000 will be made to Dr. McCormick for any academic purpose which he selects.”
McCormick was first appointed as the Chancellor’s Fellow in Public Health two years ago. Since then he has focused on System-wide public health education, academic and community relations, and multidisciplinary research.
He organized and led a two-day Wellness Symposium last March at the Thompson Conference Center of UT Austin. Symposium participants developed recommendations for implementation of prevention and wellness programs for faculty, staff and students at all UT System institutions.
McCormick also is the James H. Steele Professor of Epidemiology at the UT School of Public Health.
