Annual Welcome & Pinning Ceremony

About This Event

The Welcome & Pinning Ceremony is a long-standing tradition and our opportunity to welcome new students to the Dornsife School of Public Health.

The pinning ceremony was first instituted at the School nearly 20 years ago by the founding Dean and humanitarian, Dr. Jonathan Mann. Opening remarks will be provided by Mario Cruz, MD, Medical Director for Pediatric and Adolescent Health Center for Philadelphia FIGHT. Student Government Organization Officers will lead the new students in reciting the preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Charter of the World Health Organization as a reflection of the school’s commitment to social justice, our vision of health as a human right, and an important step that formally welcomes all new students into the field of public health.

To attend this event via Zoom, please register below. We hope to see you there!
