The Foundation established the RADM Michael Fellowship to honor the late Rear Admiral Jerrold M. Michael, an engineer officer who was a lifelong advocate for improved public health education.
The devotion RADM Michael had for both the USPHS Commissioned Corps and academia is legendary. Following his 20-year career in the United States Public Health Service as an engineer officer, where he retired as an Assistant Surgeon General, RADM Michael served as Dean of the School of Public Health at the University of Hawaii from 1972 to 1992 and continued as Professor of Public Health through 1995. He later served as Emeritus Professor at the University of Hawaii and as an Adjunct Professor of Global Health at the Milken Institute School of Public Health, The George Washington University.
