The School of Public Health community was saddened to learn that Dr. Judith Shinogle, a former faculty member of the school and an affiliate faculty member of the Maryland Population Research Center, was killed in an automobile accident on May 20, 2012.

Judith Shinogle was one of the initial group of faculty members who formed the School of Public Health's Department of Health Services Administration. She was an assistant professor with a focus on health care economics and served from 2006-2008 in that role. Shinogle played an important role in the development of courses and curriculum for the new department, worked on grant development, advised the first doctoral students, and was a member of a grant-funded research team.

After she resigned for a faculty position at UMBC in 2008, she continued to mentor young faculty in the department and was an active member of a group of young investigators in health services from local universities started by a current faculty member. Shinogle was much admired and appreciated for her role in mentoring up-and-coming young investigators.

We extend our deepest sympathies to her friends and family for this tragic loss.
