President Houshmand and CMSRU Dean Reboli named to South Jersey BIZ Power 50 list – Rowan Today

Rowan University President Ali A. Houshmand and Cooper Medical School of Rowan University Dean Annette C. Reboli were named to one of the regions most exclusive lists this month, the South Jersey BIZ Power 50.

The list, which includes such statewide and regional leaders as Governor Phil Murphy, Subaru of America President Thomas Doll, and Mark Clouse, president and CEO of the Campbell Soup Company, annually recognizes those men and women whose vision, perseverance and drive help make the institutions they lead successful.

Influencers. Visionaries. Difference-makers. Those are just some of the many ways to describe the names on our annual Power 50 list, SJ BIZ editors wrote in introducing their Power 50 Class of 2020.

Houshmand, who became Rowans seventh president in 2012, has built his presidency, and the future of Rowan, on four guiding principles: increasing access to a four-year degree, keeping that degree affordable, high quality education and leveraging the Universitys capacity to be an economic engine.

I am most passionate about transforming Rowan to an institution that is responsive to the challenges of the 21st century, that provides affordable and relevant education to all, and that strives to enhance the economic well-being of our surrounding communities, Houshmand told the magazine.

Reboli, a prominent infectious disease specialist who became CMSRU dean in 2016, helped develop the school, southern New Jerseys first new medical school in more than 30 years.

Formerly head of the Division of Infectious Diseases, deputy chief of administration for the Department of Medicine and hospital epidemiologist for Cooper Health System in Camden, Dr. Reboli served as CMSRUs founding vice dean.

The overall impact of the coronavirus pandemic keeps me up at night, Reboli told the magazine. During this unprecedented time, were experiencing some of the greatest health, societal and financial challenges of our lifetimes. In my sector of health care and medical education, I worry most about how hospitals will weather the financial impact and whether our medical schools will be able to meet physician workforce needs in the face of uncertain financial support from the state.

Congratulations Drs. Houshmand and Reboli!
