Celebrating the Life of Sid Lerner

The Lerner Center for Public Health Promotion was established in 2011 thanks to a generous gift from Sid and Helaine Lerner. After retiring from a successful career in advertising, Sid Lerner turned his attention to improving public health and launched the Monday Campaigns in the early-2000s to motivate people to view Monday as the day we collectively dedicate ourselves to better health. Please join us in celebrating Sid’s life and learning about his impactful contributions to public health.
