Oseni Abiri, alumnus of the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Rural Public Health, has been selected as one of 25 new Allan Rosenfield Global Health Fellows. Abiri will engage in an intensive one-year assignment with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and be based in Nigeria.
The purpose of the fellowship program is to enhance training of graduates of the schools of public health with an interest in global health and HIV/AIDS. The training offered through this program will expand the global health prevention workforce and provide fellows an opportunity to gain practical, firsthand experience on the front lines of international public health. Fellows will benefit from an opportunity to apply and translate academic knowledge of public health to real world situations.
The fellowship was established by the Association of Schools of Public Health with support from the CDC in 2003.
