EAES Geography BA alumnus Zachary Ehrlich volunteered to work for the COVID-19 emergency team at the New Jersey Department of Health. Ehrlich currently works at the NJDOH as an inspector in the Public Health and Food Protection Program but has been conducting epidemiology work during the pandemic.
He graduated from Montclair State University in Geography (Urban Studies concentration) in 2013, with minors in Public Health, Environmental Justice, and Anthropology. He then attended New York Medical College with a Master of Public Health (2017) in environmental health science.
This month, Ehrlich was inducted into the Delta Omega Honorary Society in Public Health. Earlier this year, he received the Vincent R. Zurawski Award for meritorious contributions to the field by the New Jersey Environmental Health Association.
