Dentzer graduated in Dartmouth's second-ever four-year coeducational class, then pursued an extraordinary career in the news media and health policy while keeping a strong commitment to her alma mater.
LEADING THE WAY
Dentzer's illustrious career as a journalist covering health policy and economics has taken on an impressive trajectory over the past decade. She recently left the role of editor-in-chief of Health Affairs to become the senior policy advisor for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the largest philanthropy in the United States focused exclusively on health and health care. For her prior work as a health correspondent on PBS's News Hour, she won the 2005 Award for Excellence in Health Care Journalism.
IN HER OWN WORDS
"I fell in love with Dartmouth as a young woman, and I love it all the more now that I understand—and have helped to shape—its unique role in U.S. higher education."
