Bedford resident Carly Linder graduated from Drexel University’s School of Public Health with a Master of Public Health and was inducted into the Delta Omega National Honor Society at the School of Public Health’s annual end-of-year awards ceremony.

Membership in the Delta Omega National Honor Society is awarded to students who achieve the highest grades in their class, reflecting each individual’s commitment to excellence in the application and synthesis of public health principles as well as to the protection and improvement of population and community health.

Linder is one of only 16 students to be named to the honor society this year from the School of Public Health.

Each student at the School of Public Health makes a significant and meaningful impact on the health of communities from the moment they start at the School of Public Health, and we are proud of their accomplishments.”
