Sanjit and Jharna Basak Student Assistance Fund

The funds support students’ attendance at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association. 

Dr. Jharna Basak created this fund in 2016 in honor of her late husband, Dr. Sanjit Basak. He was an outstanding physician and community member. While all who knew Dr. Basak can remember his dedication to caring and listening to his patients, the assistance fund will keep alive the many healing qualities that made him such a prominent health care professional.
