NEW YORK, March 12, 2021 — At its 2021 Annual Meeting this month, the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) will present the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy (CUNY SPH) with the Harrison C. Spencer Award for Outstanding Community Service.

The ASPPH Harrison C. Spencer Award for Outstanding Community Service acknowledges Dr. Spencer, who had a long-standing commitment to social justice principles focusing on community engagement. This annual award is given to an ASPPH-member and accredited school or public health program that demonstrates a significant institutional commitment to addressing community needs through education, practice, and research.

CUNY SPH said that community engagement is integral to its vision of promoting health and social justice in New York City and across the globe through innovation and excellence in education, research, and service in public health. “We embrace a multifaceted concept of ‘community’ that includes half a million CUNY students at its center, exceeding a million when including the students’ families and close social circle. The school engages with its immediate neighborhood in Harlem, broader New York City public health community, government agencies, health care institutions, and academia,” the institution elaborated.

“We are delighted and humbled by the news of this award,” said CUNY SPH Dean Ayman El-Mohandes. “We look forward to continuing our work to partner with our community in New York City and beyond, to advance social justice, and to improve health outcomes for all.”

The CUNY Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy (commonly known as the CUNY School of Public Health, or CUNY SPH) is a public research and professional college within the City University of New York (CUNY) system of colleges.
