Shih-Ho Lue, MPH ’08
Shih-Ho Lue, MPH ’08, has had a strong interest in clinical research since he was a medical student in Taiwan. In fact, he decided to pursue his MPH at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health because he wanted to learn more about quantitative methods and “big data.” When asked about the people who had a strong influence on his work, he cites Dr. Murray Mittleman, who was always able to simplify the most complicated materials, and Dr. Miguel Hernan, who was his mentor. Both are professors of epidemiology. “I have fond memories of my work with faculty and colleagues,” says Shih-Ho, “but Dr. Mittleman and Dr. Hernan were instrumental in my success, and I really appreciate their guidance. Also, Dr. Gregory Wellenius, SD ’04 and I had a fruitful collaboration. Harvard Chan School had a significant impact on my career, and now it’s time for me to give back.” Shih-Ho has created a deferred gift annuity, which will give him a life income after a set number of years (the “deferral”), and then the remainder will help fund the work of the School.
