The position on the 24-member executive board increases the national standing of the college among researchers, practitioners, and potential students, Dr. El-Mohandes said.
For more than 15 years, Dr. El-Mohandes has given numerous presentations, submitted many abstracts and has served on the Committee for Women's Rights in the APHA, said Rita Parris, executive director of the Public Health Association of Nebraska.
"He has shown extensive leadership in the field of public health; as a practitioner and through research and education," Parris said.

Great news, Congratulations!
Congratulations, Dr. El Mohandes! Since beginning my employment here a little over a year ago I have watched Ayman as he goes through his work day. I don't believe I have ever seen someone so passionate over the welfare of our community as the Dean of the College of Public Health. His energy and enthusiam are contagious to the people around him. I am proud to be counted as one of the "COPHites."
