Alumni & Networking

The UCLA Fielding School of Public Health is at the center of an extensive network of colleagues, alumni, and friends who work in all aspects of healthcare in California, the country, and across the globe. This network forms an important resource for both students and alumni. The classroom uses case studies, field projects, guest lectures, and mentorships to expose students to the diversity of healthcare endeavors - public and private, for profit and not for profit, community-based and entrepreneurial, direct service delivery, cutting-edge technology - that make up Southern California's dynamic healthcare marketplace.

The EMPH Program was a catalyst for me beginning my career in healthcare in Los Angeles. My prior work experience was an active duty officer in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General Corps. If it wasn't for the powerful network this program provides, I would not be working with the Medical Delivery Network at Cedars-Sinai.

Mike Galper was honored the evening of Saturday, October 7, 2017 at the Los Angeles Zoo. Mike and Gayle received the Celebrating Children award from Hathaway Sycamores Child and Family Services for their incredible commitment to at-risk youth here in Los Angeles.

In addition to Mike’s work at UCLA and PwC, Mike is also a long-standing Board member of Hathaway-Sycamores.
