Thomas E. Novotny, MD MPH

Professor Emeritus, Epidemiology and Biostatistics, San Diego State University

Dr. Novotny is a graduate of the University of Nebraska Medical Center and of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (MPH Epidemiology).  He completed residency training in the UCSF Family Medicine Program in Santa Rosa and in the Preventive Medicine Residency at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.  He is Professor Emeritus of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at San Diego State University. Dr. Novotny was Professor of Epidemiology at UC San Francisco (UCSF) in 2002-2009, and then was co-director of the Joint PhD program in Global Health at San Diego State University and UC San Diego, where his research focused on global health diplomacy, tobacco,  and non-communicable diseases.  After more than a decade in academic medicine, he returned to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in January 2016. He relocated from San Diego to Washington DC to serve as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health with a focus on Science and Medicine.   We are fortunate that he again lives full time in San Diego so that we could have him as our speaker today and learn about some of his more memorable experiences in the role as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Health. 

Dr. Novotny is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and is a Fellow in the American Academy of Preventive Medicine. He has published more than 190 scientific articles and co-edited four books, including 21st Century Health Diplomacy. He was awarded an honorary Doctor of Science degree and membership in Alpha Omega Alpha honorary society by the University of Nebraska in 2015.

Joseph Frangiosa, Jr.  is a curator, craftsman, artist and historian who specializes in handmade one-of-a-kind nautical history displays.    In case you hadn’t noticed Joe’s little Nautical History Gallery and Museum across from the Maserati dealership on Pearl Street you really should note the hours he's open for business and stop in.   His collection of historical ship models and related treasures will blow your mind.

A description of Joe on the Gallery’s website says this:  “I will produce any structure, concept or idea from the research of texts, drawings or photographs into a three dimensional format.   Any time period or item of interest is possible.   The ships and cases are handmade, utilizing poplar and basswood.  Other materials, such as brass/aluminum tube, jewelry pieces, plumbing PVC, and leather eyelets, to name a few, are used to accent and detail the construction.  Most of the displays to date come together to reflect revolutionary changes in Naval Technology, from the “Age of Sail” circa 1800 to the “Steam Era” circa 1900 and then the Aircraft Carrier.”   You are encouraged to take a peek inside the books he was asked to bring in addition to examples of these spectacular models.  The books include details of other specially commissioned creations that you won’t see at his La Jolla Gallery and Museum or at the San Diego Maritime Museum where Joe also works on displays and where some of his other models are on loan.   

Joe says his experiences serving in both the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps helped to develop his strong interests in historical research.   But we should let him elaborate on how he developed this unique trade and his vision for the Gallery.
