ASPPH/CDC Public Health Fellows work closely with nationally recognized experts within the nation’s premier health promotion, prevention, and preparedness agency and global leader in public health.
“As an ASPPH fellow, I had the opportunity to further develop my research skills, while working with and learning from some of the top public health leaders. The mentorship, hands-on experience, and training I received was essential to my development as a public health professional and researcher,” said Ms. Ghenet Besera, ASPPH/CDC Fellowship alumna. “I am very interested in reproductive health, and my fellowship experience strengthened my interest in the field. This experience prepared me to make a significant contribution to public health in general and the field of reproductive health more specifically.”
