Dr. Megan Ranney became the dean of the Yale School of Public Health in July 2023, to lead the school in its new financial and administrative independence after 107 years within the School of Medicine. Dean Ranney was previously deputy dean of the Brown University School of Public Health and held the Warren Alpert endowed professorship in the department of emergency medicine at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

Dean Ranney was a prominent voice during the Covid-19 pandemic, particularly for bringing attention to and organizing solutions for the dangerous lack of personal protective equipment for frontline healthcare workers. She is a leading advocate for treating gun violence as a public health matter.

Dean Ranney's MPH comes from the Brown School of Public Health, her MD from Columbia, and her AB in the history of science from Harvard. (The other half of the Ivy League awaits its turn.) Her accolades are many. Read a longer bio on YSPH’s website.

We are exceedingly privileged to have her, a fellow Rhode Islander, speak to us.
