ASPPH is pleased to announce the selection of three new fellows who will engage in an intensive one-year assignment at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), within the Center for Global Health (CGH). This cohort of ASPPH/CDC Allan Rosenfield Global Health Fellows were recruited as a special training cohort to focus on Ebola response. The new fellows will be working under the guidance of CDC mentors to help with the continued response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and preparedness efforts throughout Africa in order to prevent or respond to a future outbreak. The fellows will be based in the CDC Center for Global Health, Division of Global Health Protection – two with the Emergency Response and Recovery Branch and one with the Global Health Security Branch.
The new fellows have attended a comprehensive orientation program in Atlanta, GA. Following the program, fellows will begin their assignments located at CDC headquarters in Atlanta. In honor of Dr. Allan Rosenfield’s legacy, the fellows will participate in CDC global projects aimed at reducing the burden of disease and disability on people who live without access to basic, life-saving health care, as they build their own capacity to be the next generation of global health leaders.
During orientation, the new fellows expressed that they were “excited to make a contribution toward CDC’s work in responding to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. We look forward to developing our skills and careers in global health, and building capacity in the countries where we train.”
The March 2015 ASPPH/CDC Allan Rosenfield Global Health Fellows are:
ASPPH would like to thank CDC’s Center for Global Health for their continued support of this important workforce development program.
