Romani, public health educator.

Former APHA President John Romara, PhD, a professor emeritus at the University of Michigan School of Public Health, died in July. He was 90.

Throughout his more than 30 years of work at the University of Michigan School of Public Health, he served in a variety of capacities, including assistant dean, associate dean, first chair and then interim chair of the Department of Health Planning and Administration. He also served as vice chancellor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee from 1969 to 1971.

Outside of academia, Romani frequently worked with local, state, national and international health organizations and played a key role in developing Michigan's first public health code.

He also chaired the working group charged with organizing the structure of Michigan's state and local public health authorities.

Romani served as APHA president in 1979 and was a member of the Health Administration Section. He also chaired the committee that led to the formation of the Council for Education in Public Health. After he formally retired, Romani continued to teach at the University of Michigan School of Public Health and Program in the Environment.
