On behalf of UCLA and the Fielding School of Public Health, I congratulate each of you. 

Today marks a joyous moment in your academic career, where we celebrate individual and collective achievement, new beginnings and hope for the future. We honor you, our students, who have worked long and hard to arrive at graduation; your friends and families, whose support has made today a reality for many; and our faculty, whose teaching and guidance have brought the graduates to the conclusion of their studies. 

This is an exciting time to be a part of public health. The field is thriving and increased public awareness of what we do has created, and will continue to create, many new opportunities for educators and leaders in public health. 

It is with great pride that we send you out into the field of public health armed with skills, dedication and a profound sense of purpose. I am excited about the opportunities awaiting you and am confident in your abilities to do great things.
