In recognition of National Public Health Week, WVU School of Public Health encourages everyone to join in with students, faculty and staff to celebrate with a series of events, April 1-5, focused on collaboration and community engagement. All events are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.



The WVU School of Public Health is honored to host Tim Leshan, MPA, chief external relations and advocacy officer at the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH), for a compelling conversation about civic engagement in the field of public health. During his presentation, Leshan will share invaluable advice and insights gleaned from his extensive work in advocacy, offering guidance on how individuals can contribute to meaningful change through civic engagement. Following his talk, participants will have the opportunity to engage with Leshan directly during a Q&A session. This event is a must-attend for anyone interested in understanding the power of advocacy in public health and learning how to become more involved in shaping policies for the betterment of our communities.


Leshan has a wealth of experience in advocacy within the public health domain and has enjoyed a long career in governmental relations and community affairs.


Prior to joining ASPPH, Leshan served as vice provost for research government affairs and strategic partnerships for Northeastern University’s global research network, director of government relations and community affairs at Brown University, branch chief and senior policy analyst in the Policy and Program Analysis Branch of the National Human Genome Research Institute at the National Institutes of Health and director of public policy for the American Society for Cell Biology. He has also worked at Duke University and the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
