Lamstein Family/JSI Scholarship Highlighted in Boston University Publication

January 9, 2017

JSI founder and president Joel Lamstein and the Lamstein Family/JSI Scholarship were recently profiled in the Boston University School of Public Health 40th Anniversary publication.

Founded in 2012, the Lamstein Family/JSI Scholarship supports one or more masters in public health students annually. The scholarship is awarded to candidates based on financial need and academic merit. Lamstein, who also chairs the SPH Dean’s Advisory Board, says that JSI and the school “have been long-term partners in education, research, and practice.”

As an organization dedicated to improving the health of individuals and communities in the U.S. and around the world, JSI has “been fortunate to grow and thrive for over 35 years, and much of our success can be attributed to our ability to attract smart, committed, and compassionate staff,” Lamstein says. “We draw that staff from elite schools throughout the country and always have had great success with students from Boston University School of Public Health. I believe it is therefore incumbent on organizations like JSI to give back to the community that has helped foster our success.”

“Global health has gained wide popularity among students, and public health will be in good hands as these students join the field,” Lamstein continues. “We therefore are pleased to contribute to the SPH to further the aspirations of these future leaders of public health.”
