New Lerner Gift Amplifies the Impact of Healthy Mondays and Public Health Initiatives

Date Published: 11-29-2023

Words that resonate, a memorable message and the power of the media to inspire action—these are fundamental to improving public health and foundational to the Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion and Population Health. Established at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs in 2011 with a gift from Sidney “Sid” Lerner ’53 and his wife, Helaine, the Lerner Center has brought together students, faculty and disciplines from across the University to bring marketing and promotion best practices to public health.

Now, with a new $2.52 million gift to the Lerner Center and the Forever Orange Campaign, Helaine Lerner strives to amplify the impact of the center’s work to educate, inspire and empower a new generation of advocates for public health: “We hope the center can build on Sid’s creative vision and legacy to train the next generation of skilled, smart and tech savvy individuals who can modernize and broaden the impact of public health promotion.”
