ICYMI: Bing joins SMU faculty in concurrent appointment with Bush Institute

March 11, 2013 by Jacqueline Lowe

In case you missed it, Southern Methodist University (SMU) reported on the recent appointment of the Bush Institute’s Global Health Director Eric G. Bing as a professor of global health:


“Global health researcher Eric G. Bing has joined the SMU faculty as professor of global health in a concurrent appointment with The George W. Bush Institute.


At SMU, Bing has been named a professor of global health in the Applied Physiology and Wellness Department of the Annette Caldwell Simmons School of Education and Human Development and in the Department of Anthropology of Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences. He remains the senior fellow and director of global health at the Bush Institute.


“We are extremely pleased that Dr. Bing has joined the SMU faculty in addition to his work at the Bush Institute,” said James K. Glassman, executive director of the George W. Bush Institute. “It is the latest example of the excellent cooperation between our two institutions.”


“It’s an honor to join the SMU faculty,” said Bing. “Across campus, in every college, there is an abundance of talent and resources, supported by strong leadership at all levels.  SMU is an ideal place to build effective and productive partnerships that not only cross the campus, but the world.”


As director of global health at the Bush Institute since 2010, Bing has initiated worldwide health initiatives, including serving as co-leader of the institute’s Pink Ribbon Red Ribbon partnership, an $85 million public-private program designed to combat cervical and breast cancer in Africa and Latin America.”
