Carolyn Henry, DVM, MS, ACVIM (Oncology), dean of the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine, was recently inducted into the Delta Omega Honor Society in Public Health. Delta Omega is a national honor society for public health. It was founded at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in 1924. Delta Omega recognizes outstanding accomplishment in scholarship, research and practice each year. This year the Gamma Eta Chapter at MU, one of 120 chapters across the United States, inducted Henry as its honorary inductee, along with eight MU students, five alumni, and another faculty member.
Henry said she didn’t expect the induction. “That came as a complete surprise to me,” she said. “It was very rewarding in that Dean Kristofer Hagglund (PhD, ABPP, dean of the School of Health Professions) and I had a shared vision for the Master of Public Health program and really developed the department of public health as a shared department between the CVM and the School of Health Professions. It’s an honor and a surprise, as well as validation that we’ve done something here that’s unique.”
