Recent Drexel Graduate Provides Support at CDC on Epidemiology of Ebola

Drexel University School of Public Health alumna Ms. Lauren Finn, MPH ’13, recently supported efforts at the CDC regarding the global Ebola epidemic. As part of her CDC/CSTE Applied Epidemiology Fellowship, she was providing data management support at CDC for the Ebola response. She had the opportunity to assist with the analysis of international Ebola data, and provided assistance in addressing inquiries from health care providers and health department staff. Soon she will be transitioning out of the fellowship program and will start a new position as the water-borne diseases surveillance coordinator in the Acute Communicable Disease Program at PDPH.  In addition to participating in disease investigations, epidemiological and scientific studies, and educational outreach efforts, she will also act as a liaison to the Philadelphia Water Department in addressing water-related concerns.
