On Friday, March 31, 2017, Dr. Hattie Myles is retiring from her role as the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs and Educational Enrichment at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine. Over her long tenure with the University, Dr. Myles has led many critical initiatives. The Center for Healthy Communities (CHC) is particularly thankful to Dr. Myles for her service as Co-Core Director of the Community Outreach Core for the Center for Healthy Communities’ Center of Excellence in Health Disparities. For over 10 years Dr. Myles has spearheaded the CHC’s Pipeline Program which has encouraged, supported, trained, and mentored high school and undergraduate students from health disparate communities as they have pursued college preparation, undergraduate and graduate education, and career paths in the biomedical professions. She has made a tremendous impact on the lives of countless students. We are proud of all she has accomplished and wish her the best in her well-deserved retirement.
The College of Medicine is hosting a retirement reception for Dr. Myles on Friday, March 31, 2017, from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Terrace on the second floor of the USA Student Center.
