Dr. Haroutune K. Armenian is Professor in residence at the UCLA and Professor Emeritus of epidemiology at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health where he received his MPH, and Dr.P.H. degrees (1972-4) and his M.D. from the American University of Beirut in 1968 where he has specialized in internal medicine. His career in epidemiology has spanned a number of countries and regions of the world. He is one of the earliest to apply epidemiologic methods to study the effects of the civil war at the population level during the 1980s in Lebanon, and the long-term effects of the 1988 earthquake in Armenia. In the 1980s, he pioneered epidemiologic research by using Armenian Church parish records to study infant mortality as well as other health indicators in 16 diasporan countries over a timeframe of 300 years. More recent research includes the study of cancer within the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study, and the study of psychopathology as a determinant of physical illness in Baltimore.
Dr. Armenian’s academic and development leadership has included program development at the Ministry of Health in Bahrain, Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences at the American University of Beirut, Director of the MPH Program at the Johns Hopkins University, and Dean of the College of Health Sciences at the American University of Armenia.
Dr. Armenian is President Emeritus of the American University of Armenia (AUA). As President of the AUA for fourteen years, he was at the forefront of the establishment of novel educational and development programs in Armenia and the Middle East.
