Six San Diego State University faculty members recently received the SDSU Alumni Distinguished Faculty Awards for outstanding contributions to the university and their respective fields. The honors were presented by SDSU President Adela de la Torre at the All-University Convocation on Thursday, Aug. 23. We will be highlighting each faculty member in the coming days.

Hala Madanat is a professor and director of the School of Public Health in the College of Health and Human Services. She has strengthened critical relationships with the San Diego County Department of Health and Human Services and other local partners. While participating in the school’s national reaccreditation process, she improved its data systems and updated its mission statement, resulting in high ratings and reaccreditation for a maximum term. She has initiated new international experiences for students and worked with a leading Tijuana-based university, UABC, to develop “Obesity on the Border,” a new course to be taught jointly by SDSU and UABC faculty for students at both universities.
