ASPPH Welcomes Class of 2014 ASPPH/CDC Allan Rosenfield Global Health Fellows

ASPPH is pleased to announce the selection of 31 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). The ASPPH/CDC Allan Rosenfield Global Health Fellows for 2014-2015 have attended a comprehensive orientation program for two weeks in Atlanta, GA. Following the program, fellows will begin their assignments located in eleven countries abroad as well as 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.

New ASPPH/CDC Allan Rosenfield Global Health Fellow Ms. Meghan Duffy writes, “Over the course of orientation, I have learned just how fortunate I am to have been selected as an ASPPH Fellow. This year I will have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best and brightest minds in the field of public health – people who are truly fulfilling the mission of Dr. Rosenfield by improving the health of impoverished and marginalized communities around the world.”

The 2014-2015 ASPPH/CDC Allan Rosenfield Global Health Fellows are:

The first week included welcome sessions by ASPPH and CDC staff; sessions presented by CDC staff on the structure, priorities, and leadership of CGH; and sessions presented by ASPPH staff on policies and procedures. Fellows also participated in skill-building trainings on conflict management, developing goals and objectives, and creating effective presentations. In addition, fellows had an opportunity to learn from current and former ASPPH/CDC Allan Rosenfield Global Health Fellows, as they presented on their own experiences in the fellowship. During the second week, the fellows participated in a three-day training provided by CDC entitled “Preparing for Work Overseas.”

ASPPH would like to thank CDC for their continued support of this important workforce development program.
