Gangarosas endow complementary chairs to promote safe water and sanitation worldwide

Eugene and Rose Gangarosa make quite a team. Married for 61 years, the couple has lived in several countries during Gene’s long career as an expert in waterborne diseases. In 2004, the Gangarosas pledged to endow two academic chairs. Today, the Eugene J. Gangarosa Chair in Safe Water is held by Christine Moe, director of the Center for Global Safe Water. The couple recently completed funding for the complementary Rose Salamone Chair in Environmental Health, to be held by an expert in sanitation. During a luncheon in their honor, Rose presented a final check on the couple’s behalf to RSPH Dean James Curran.

Gene Gangarosa has been a mentor to Christine Moe, associate professor in the Hubert Department of Global Health and an expert on the environmental transmission of infectious disease. Gangarosa is a founding father of the RSPH and professor emeritus of global health. He continues to lecture Rollins students.

RSPH campaign support tops $142 million

To date, the RSPH has raised $142.8 million—more than 95% of its $150 million goal—for Campaign Emory. Gifts to the RSPH help build endowments for teaching and research, scholarships, programs, and facilities. As of mid-April, the university had raised $1.19 billion, 74% of its $1.6 billion goal. With less than two years to go, the RSPH is on track to meet its dollar goal, but support is still needed to increase the school’s endowment.

To learn more about Campaign Emory and the RSPH, visit campaign.emory.edu. To make a gift, contact Kathryn Graves, Associate Dean for Development and External Relations, at 404-727-3352 or kgraves@emory.edu.
