Ayman El-Mohandes, M.B.B.Ch., M.D., M.P.H., dean of UNMC's College of Public Health, said: "Brandon represents excellence as a young leader in the college and works tirelessly to link us to the practice community. In collaboration with his colleagues, he has helped maintain the success of the leadership institute, which brings visibility to the college, and is seen as an important source of professional development, not only in Nebraska but also regionally."
The Balderson Award for the Support of Public Health Leadership Development recognizes individuals who play an important role in the support and promotion of the public health leadership institutes and/or public health leadership in general.
Congrats to Brandon! Dr. El Mohandes' quote says it all -- Brandon is a great young man!
