​​The Gangarosa family recently made a gift to AUB to establish the Gangarosa Family Endowed Chair for Safe Water and Sanitation. “All of us at AUB are deeply grateful to the Gangarosa family for this extraordinary gift that will support ongoing and critically important efforts at FHS to address issues related to water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) in the Global South, focusing especially on the needs of the Arab world,” said President Fadlo Khuri. The Gangarosa Chair at FHS will work closely with Dr. Christine Moe, the Eugene J. Gangarosa Professor of Safe Water and Sanitation and the director of the Center for Global Safe Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene at Emory University. “Gene and Rose Gangarosa have amazing vision, persistence, and generosity. They have planted ‘WASH seeds’ at several academic institutions which will grow and strengthen public health capacity in WASH research, training, and problem-solving for decades.
