Health Alliance International Welcomes Dr. Bernice Dahn, Minister of Health – Liberia to Seattle

Feb 8, 2017

Dr. Bernice Dahn is the Minister of Health of Liberia and is being honored with the Distinguished Alumni Award at the University of Washington, School of Public Health.  Distinguish Alumni are recognized for their notable service and achievement in a public health setting and for the exceptional resourcefulness, innovation and creativity they bring to their service.

Dr. Dahn first came to the University of Washington as a Population Leadership Program Fellow in 2001, and then returned to the university in 2003 to complete a MPH degree.  During her time at the UW, HAI founder and Department of Global Health faculty, Dr. Steve Gloyd and Dr. Mary Anne Mercer, HAI Senior MNCH Advisor, mentored Dr. Dahn.

We were honored to host a luncheon at HAI office for Dr. Dahn to catch up with an old friend and discuss the status of the health situation in Liberia with a group of HAI staff and Seattle-based physicians who volunteer their services in Liberia.
