Physician overcomes adversity to get public health degree

For most people, obtaining a medical degree would be a natural stopping place in their academic career. Likewise, most people with diabetes who undergo dialysis and quadruple bypass, kidney transplant and double lower-leg amputation surgery, all in two years, might be tempted to retire.

But not Dr. Anthony Linz of Sandusky, medical director of BGSU Firelands’ respiratory care technology program. The pulmonary and critical care osteopathic physician, who first graduated from Bowling Green in 1971 with a degree in biology (pre-med) and a minor in chemistry, decided when faced with those daunting circumstances that he would simply change his career path. That was in 1999.

In 2001, he came back to school at BGSU, and on Aug. 5 received his master’s degree in public health administration. Linz was surrounded by numerous family members who, like he, are Bowling Green alumni.
