    University of Iowa College of Public Health announces 2018 Iowa Public Health Heroes

    On Nov. 28, the University of Iowa College of Public Health honored three leaders whose contributions across a range of disciplines have helped promote better health and prevent disease throughout the state of Iowa.

    The 2018 Iowa Public Health Heroes Awards were presented to Arlinda McKeen, recently retired from a 25-year career with the State Public Policy Group; Patricia Quinlisk, who served as the medical director and state epidemiologist at the Iowa Department of Public Health for 24 years until her retirement earlier this year; and Kara Vogelson, organizational development and research manager at the Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health.

    The annual Iowa Public Health Heroes Awards recognize exceptional efforts by individuals from diverse career paths who have worked to improve health and wellness throughout Iowa. Award recipients are nominated by their peers in the Iowa public health practice community.

    “These three award recipients have dedicated their careers to protecting, improving, and advocating for the health of Iowans,” says Edith Parker, dean of the College of Public Health. “The college is proud to recognize their outstanding service and achievements.”
