In Memoriam: Dr. Joyce Mann

On behalf of the entire USC Sol Price School of Public Policy community, we extend our heartfelt condolences to the parents, family, and friends of Dr. Joyce Mann, who passed away on Monday, June 27th, 2022.

Joyce joined USC Price in 1999, serving as director of the IPPAM program for the last 13 years. Her intellect, generosity, and compassion touched the lives of everyone who had the honor of knowing and working with her. Joyce’s research centered on health care issues and made a lasting impact in the field, leaving behind a legacy that will continue to inform future policymakers.

As dedicated and thoughtful Joyce was with her team, colleagues, and beloved students, she would not want to see anyone in distress. Instead, we can remember her by her contagious laughter, spirited work, and the intimate yet enriching moments you shared with her at IPPAM and USC Price.

Her goals truly embodied the mission of the Price School as she seeked to improve the quality of life for people and their communities. For every person that has crossed her path, it will be difficult to forget her admirable tenacity, never-ending care, and kind soul. Joyce was one of a kind, and her presence will be greatly missed.
