On June 7, NSU College of Osteopathic Medicine coordinated a farewell reception for Leonard Levy, D.P.M., M.P.H., associate dean of research and innovation. During his 17 years at the college, Levy worked with the geriatrics, biomedical informatics, disaster and emergency management, research and innovation, and public health programs.

“After 49 years—17 of them at NSU-COM—I am about to end an extremely rewarding career, one I would not want to change in any way,” Levy said. “I consider myself so blessed, having served in multiple roles in academic health centers, including as president, vice president, founding dean twice, and full-time consultant.” After his formal retirement, Levy will remain part of the college as a clinical professor.
