"I was so excited that UGA opened a College of Public Health, soon to be followed by a medical campus, that I felt obligated to help. I loved my years at UGA, still value my education, and always planned to do something to acknowledge my gratitude to the state, and the school. I love that UGA has grown from a regional to a global institution, and I only wish I could do more." — Dr. Harold S. Solomon (BS ’61)

Dr. Solomon, a “product of Georgia public schools,” went on to earn his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia and is now an associate clinical professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. His gift of $50,000 helped the UGA College of Public Health establish a Maymester course taught by a public health expert from Israel. The first class, a course on emergency preparedness, was offered in May 2009. Dr. Solomon’s wife, Milly Pincus Solomon, also attended UGA. Grateful for the education they received in Georgia, the Solomons wanted to give back to their home state and give a gift reflective of their connection to the UGA Jewish community.
