Dr. Alina Dorian, who received her PhD from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2002, has been named Associate Dean for Practice Across the Life Course at UCLA Fielding School of Public Health.
Dr. Jody Heymann, dean of the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, shared the news in a recent email:
“Much of Dr. Dorian’s public health practice experience has focused on the role of domestic and international public health systems in planning for and responding to public health emergencies, and the development of tools and policies to decrease the impact of disasters. She has managed projects in Armenia, Georgia, Eritrea, Dominican Republic, and Macedonia. She has also led disaster response teams following natural disasters or during complex emergencies in Kosovo, Haiti, and Peru.
The email also noted that Dr. Dorian “also has deep experience in the improvement of health care systems. For the last 25 years, she has been working in Nagorno-Karabagh to address the needs of refugee and internally displaced populations.”
Dr. Dorian received her BS in Biology from UCLA.
