Dr. Christopher Murray '80
Join us for Homecoming!
Breck's 2004 Distinguished Alumnus Dr. Christopher Murray '80 is currently a Professor of Global Health at the University of Washington and Institute Director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME). He's recently been involved in the development of COVID-19 forecasts in the U.S., the U.K. and Europe. Models developed by Dr. Murray and his team have been used by the White House, state governors, and national news outlets.
After graduating from Breck, Murray attended Harvard University where he was awarded Bachelor of Arts and Science degrees. He received a DPhil in International Health Economics from Oxford University, and returned to Harvard for medical school.
Up-to-date information from the IHME about the COVID-19 pandemic is available on their website.
Today we honor Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day and Emancipation Day, which is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the effective ending of slavery in the United States.
Breck Yearbook Edition 79 officially dropped yesterday, and there were so many students who were beyond excited to receive their copy! The theme for this year’s edition is “Better Together,” and we caught up with this year’s editors Matthew Berestka ’22, Becca Holt ’22, and Belle Johansson ’22 to get their take on why this edition is special.
In April, Breck students in Grade 2, 3, and 4 competed in the semi-annual Noetic Learning Math Contest. Noetic Learning Math Contest is a national mathematics contest for elementary and middle school students. The goal of the competition is to encourage students' interest in math, to develop their problem-solving skills, and to inspire them to excel in math.
