Through passion, commitment and hard work, Cindy Harrell Horn has made a global impact that will produce benefits for generations to come. Horn co-founded the Environmental Media Association in 1989 to increase public awareness of the world's environmental challenges. Since then, she has become a leading advocate to improve education, health and the environment. 

After 9/11, she and several friends, concerned about the safety of their families, began researching and sharing information about emergency preparedness. They invited leading experts, including members of the UCLA faculty, to speak with them about their work. A chilling fact soon emerged: Nowhere in the world was there a combined laboratory and informatics resource for tracking disease outbreaks as they happened.
