On the Front Lines: UMB Champions of Excellence Center for Health and Homeland Security Team University of Maryland, Baltimore

On October 19, 2020, the University of Maryland, Baltimore honored CHHS staff members for their work on the front-lines during the COVID-19 epidemic. CHHS staff members have assisted local emergency management and public health offices in providing critical preparedness, response and recovery work over these past months. As a result, the University has honored 8 CHHS staff members by naming them UMB Champions of Excellence.

Michael Greenberger, JD, has seen this type of dedication since the 2002 founding of CHHS, a University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) center that partners closely with the Francis King Carey School of Law to provide governmental and institutional organizations with tailored and comprehensive consulting services on emergency management and homeland security. He says the eight-person team went “above and beyond” the call of duty, leaving the safety of their homes to work grueling hours during an unprecedented health crisis.

“These people shifted into these responsibilities and never said a word about the fact that this was not what they signed up for,” said Greenberger, founder and director of CHHS. “They just went and did it — and did so without complaint. Our partners have offered nothing but the highest of praise for their work.”

 

The staff members:

Hassan Sheikh, PharmD, JD
Jihane Ambroise, MPH, CPH
Joseph Corona, CEM
Samantha Durbin, MS
Patrick Fleming, MPA, MSL
Ian Hamilton, MS
Netta Squires, JD, MSL, CEM
Kimberly Stinchcomb, MPH, CPH
