EPI Seminar: Long May You Run: Physical Activity, Public Health and Ron

This is a past event.

Presented by Andrea Kriska, PhD, MS, Professor of Epidemiology Emerita, University of Pittsburgh

 

The 2022 Fall Seminar Series honors the late Dr. Ronald LaPorte, an emeritus professor of Epidemiology who had a unique and lasting impact on epidemiology and beyond. From pioneering research of Type 1 Diabetes and physical activity, his influence spread internationally with the establishment of an internet-based 'supercourse' in public health, available to all free of charge, and the development of the Modern Library of Alexandria. 

His work embraced many other topics along the way including care for the homeless and the study of geoglyphs from space. He was a faculty member in the Department of Epidemiology for 35 years and trained 35 PhD students who now hold many leadership positions in academia, industry and the government.
