MANHATTAN, KAN. — Retired Brig. Gen. Michael B. Cates was named director of Kansas State University's master of public health program.
The former commander of the U.S. Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine and chief of the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps says he is a longtime advocate of one health — multidisciplinary, proactive approaches to health.
KSU's master of public health program, housed in the College of Veterinary Medicine, requires 42 semester hours. It covers public-health concerns, including obesity/exercise, human nutrition, food safety, infectious/zoonotic diseases and toxicology. It involves courses and faculty from the colleges of Agriculture, Arts and Sciences, Human Ecology and Veterinary Medicine.
Cates also will serve as a professor in the veterinary college.
