Join the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health for the 48th Lester Breslow Distinguished Lecture. Dr. Abdelmonem A. Afifi — dean emeritus and professor emeritus in the Department of Biostatistics — will present his lecture, "Reflections: Looking back on a 57-year career at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health".

The event will be held via Zoom Webinar on January 31, from noon - 1 p.m. PST, and hosted by Dr. Ron Brookmeyer, dean of the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. 

The Lester Breslow Distinguished Lecture was established in honor of Dr. Lester Breslow, a former dean of the school and professor of health services. In addition, Breslow served as president of the American Public Health Association, director of the California Public Health Department, and a frequent advisor to the United States federal government. A pillar of public health, Breslow was among the first to quantify the health benefits/risks and associations with life expectancy of exercise, diet, sleep, and smoking.
