Professor Konrad Jamrozik

It was with great sadness that we learned about the recent death of Professor Konrad Jamrozik. Konrad Jamrozik was Professor of Primary Care Epidemiology at Imperial College London from 2001-2004. He then returned to Australia. His most recent post was as Head of the School of Population Health and Clinical Practice at the University of Adelaide. Professor Jamrozik won a number of awards during his career, most recently, the Nigel Gray Award for Achievement in Tobacco Control.

International Public Health Group

Students from the MPH and MSc Modern Epidemiology have started the International Public Health Group to improve awareness and discussion of global health issues. The group will also provide opportunities to learn about international projects and organizations. For example, with the help of Professor Salman Rawaf, the group has arranged a visit to the WHO Headquarters in Geneva. In addition to sessions with Professor Rawaf, the group has also organised sessions with Professor Alan Fenwick and Dr Edwin Michaels from the Department of Infectious Diseases Epidemiology.
