Seton Hall University and Hackensack University Health Network (HackensackUHN) have named Dr. Bonita Stanton, a nationally recognized expert on pediatric medicine, as the founding dean of their new school of medicine which is slated to open in fall 2018. She is expected to begin her new role in March.
“Whether working with low income populations in the United States, women and children in Bangladesh, migrant workers in China or rural youth in Africa, Dean Stanton’s calling has been to bring the healing and compassion of healthcare to the world’s most vulnerable peoples,” said Seton Hall University President A. Gabriel Esteban. “Working with major universities and hospitals as well as the World Bank, the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization, she exemplifies the servant leadership spirit that is a profound part of our mission at Seton Hall. It is with great honor that we name Bonita Stanton as the founding dean of our school of medicine.”
