UTHealth Speaker Tells Grads to ‘Do Good’ and ‘Do Well’ While Building on Public Health Foundation to Create the Future

Faculty, friends, family, and honored guests gathered to celebrate nearly 400 UTHealth School of Public Health graduates at the annual commencement ceremony on Friday, May 12 at NRG Center in Houston. This year, the school celebrates 296 Master of Public Health, 13 Master of Science, 14 Doctor of Public Health, and 48 Doctor of Philosophy degrees on its six campuses in cities across Texas. Congratulations to our 2016-2017 School of Public Health graduates and thanks to all who were able to attend the celebration in Houston.

Convocation speaker Dr. Umair Shah, took a selfie with the graduates from the stage after encouraging them to text the person whom they were most supported by through their degree program. Read more about Dr. Shah here in a Q&A.
