Professor Bill Bicknell was my global health policy professor while at BUSPH, and his words still echo in my head every day as a public health practitioner: “Public health is the science and art of deciding who dies when and with what degree of misery.” He made us all think, feel, and live our responsibility to the people we hope to serve.
Bill passed away at his home last night, but is fondly remembered by the many people whose lives he touched. May he rest in peace.
There are times when I peek at twitter right before I leave to trek through a rainstorm to get home, and am so glad I saw something. Though this picture looks more like a house with words drawn by a kindergartner, maybe starting with this kind of simplicity in vision and focus is exactly what the World Health Organization needs: focus on the pillars of improving outcomes for women, continuing to support improved health in Africa, and focusing in on noncommunicable diseases. All with a roof of sustainable development and built on a foundation of universal health care. Love it.
