Paula Tran named de Beaumont Foundation’s ’40 under 40 in Public Health’
Today, Paula Tran, state health officer and administrator for the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) Division of Public Health, has been selected by the de Beaumont Foundation as one of its Class of 2023 40 Under 40 in Public Health leaders.
The de Beaumont Foundation, a national nonprofit that supports and invests in public health solutions and partnerships, announced its third class of public health leaders after reviewing nominations from hundreds of public health professionals across the United States. Honorees were selected for demonstrating determination, commitment, innovation, and resilience in the public health field, and will now participate in a two-year professional development program that will provide them with new opportunities for collaboration, mutual support, and growth.
“We are thrilled to see Paula recognized for this truly unique opportunity alongside dedicated and innovative public health leaders in Wisconsin and across the U.S.,” said Kirsten Johnson, secretary-designee for the Department of Health Services. “Paula’s commitment to the core mission of public health and her spirit of innovation, collaboration, and partnership are unmatched. We are thrilled to know her work and ideas will be shared more broadly through this opportunity and look forward to the new concepts and strategies she will bring back to Wisconsin from her colleagues in this select group of leaders.”
