The School of Public Health-Bloomington is thrilled to announce the expansion of its Dean’s Alliance advisory board, consisting of high profile leaders and scholars. Since 2005, the institution has relied on Dean’s Alliance board members for strategic planning guidance and advice. “Historically, the Dean’s Alliance has helped us to navigate challenges and take advantage of opportunities—particularly as we’ve worked to raise our profile as a data-driven, research-focused institution,” IU School of Public Health-Bloomington Dean David Allison explains.
The prestigious group also has provided support for School of Public Health students, faculty, and programs. Moving forward, the Dean’s Alliance will continue to advance the quality, reputation, and financial strength of IU School of Public Health-Bloomington.
To that end, Allison recently welcomed four new members. They include Life Biosciences Executive Officer Mehmood Khan, M.D.; ConscienHealth Principal and Founder Ted Kyle; Martha Lemert, a partner with Burt Blee Dixon Sutton & Bloom; and John Restiano, a senior partner with Dalimonte Rueb Stoller.
“The Alliance as a whole includes experts with truly wide-ranging professional expertise,” Allison says. “They come from all over the world and all walks of life. That diversity broadens our perspective and our capabilities.”
It also serves to further strengthen the position of the School of Public Health-Bloomington. “Over the next few years we hope to continue to raise the visibility and impact of the school,” Allison continues. “With additional members and our sense of renewed vigor, I’m confident we can accomplish those goals.”
The Dean’s Alliance board is scheduled to meet on June [4-5], 2020.

The Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington is renaming and transitioning the Department of Recreation, Park, and Tourism Studies and honing its focus and mission to become the Department of Health & Wellness Design.
The Indiana University Trustees gave final approval to the name change on May 5, 2020. The school has already begun the process of rebranding the department and you will continue to see changes across the summer. This change aligns the department with a forward-thinking and innovative public health model that leverages the dedication, expertise, and passion of our exceptional faculty.
The Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington hosted the inaugural Emerging Luminaries in Nutrition, Exercise, and Metabolism Symposium in the fall of 2019. The goal of the symposium was to highlight up-and-coming scholars in the areas of nutrition, exercise, and metabolism. The symposium also featured the announcement of the Grant Proposal Partnership Challenge.
The Grant Proposal Partnership Challenge was created to encourage all scholars who attended the Emerging Luminaries Symposium to pursue innovative research proposals in collaboration with faculty from the IU School of Public Health-Bloomington. Twenty-six emerging scholars from across the United States participated in the symposium and six scholars have submitted grant proposals deemed eligible for a $5,000 award by a panel of judges at the School. To be considered eligible for the award, scholars needed to submit a quality proposal by March 30, 2020 intended for extramural federal (e.g., NIH; NSF) research funding and consistent with the mission of the NIH to advance fundamental knowledge to promote human health, extend life, and reduce disability. To receive the award, scholars need to submit proof of the research proposal to a federal agency by the end of 2020.
Scholars eligible for the awards include the following:
- Dr. Andrew Brown – Indiana University Bloomington
Dr. Michelle Cardel – University of Florida
Dr. Daniella Chusyd – Indiana University Bloomington
Dr. Blair Johnson – University of Buffalo
Dr. Cordelia Running – Purdue University
Dr. Colby Vorland – Indiana University Bloomington
David Allison, Dean of the Indiana University School of Public Health, noted, “We are thrilled to see emerging scholars continue to work hard to advance the science to improve our knowledge across the disciplines of nutrition, exercise, and metabolism. We also are delighted that our Grant Proposal Partnership Challenge has helped to inspire collaboration and stimulate innovative thinking in research.”
The symposium and the Grant Proposal Partnership Challenge Award were sponsored by the Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington with unrestricted support from our generous sponsors.
