Dr. Arthur Michalek is the chapter's 2023 Honorary Delta Omega inductee, recognized for establishing public health programs throughout Western New York that have been training the workforce for decades. Art’s involvement with the School of Public Health and Health Professions predates its very existence. In the early 1990s, with the support of UB President Greiner, he negotiated an affiliation with the University at Albany School of Public Health to establish a branch here in Buffalo for the benefit of clinical trainees. Work soon began on the development of the school. In addition to breaking public health ground at UB, he spent over three decades at the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center where he was best known for his administrative skills, retiring as a senior vice president and dean of the UB Graduate Division.
