BOSTON (AP) — Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea Clinton are among those who will be honored during events celebrating the Harvard School of Public Health’s centennial.

Centennial Medals will be given to Bill Clinton; Dr. Jim Yong Kim, president of the World Bank Group and co-founder of Partners in Health; and Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, former prime minister of Norway and director-general of the World Health Organization.

Chelsea Clinton will be awarded the Next Generation Award.

The awards will be presented Thursday in Boston.

The Centennial Medals honor people whose leadership has had a significant global impact, improving the health and well-being of people around the world. The Next Generation Award honors someone under 40 whose commitment to health inspires young people to make “health for all” a global priority.
