Montclair State University’s very first Master of Public Health graduate, Tosan O. Boyo (2011), was appointed Chief Operating Officer of the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center in San Francisco, California in 2017. Zuckerberg San Francisco General, owned and operated by the City and County of San Francisco’s Department of Public Health, is part of a city-wide integrated health care system, providing primary, specialty, and hospital care for vulnerable populations. Boyo oversees daily operations at the hospital in addition to large-scale efforts such as capital projects and enjoys “being empowered to make a difference in the lives of our most vulnerable populations.”
Boyo chose the Master of Public Health program because it accommodated his full-time job and he felt that the faculty in the program would “truly invest in my development and create a learning environment that encouraged my ambitions and ability to thrive.”
With concentrations in Community Health Education and Health Systems Administration and Policy, Montclair State’s Master of Public Health program is focused on preparing culturally and professionally competent leaders in public health by providing an interdisciplinary academic and experiential program with a focus on social justice. Take the next step and apply today to begin in classes in September.
