Lora Iannotti, PhD, is one of the Washington University faculty members helping train this next generation of global health professionals.

As chair of the global health specialization for the Brown School’s Master of Public Health program, Iannotti develops curricula. She also teaches “Global Health”; “Global Hunger and Undernutrition”; and “Transdisciplinary Problem-Solving in Haiti: Public Health Interventions in Developing Countries,” which was offered for the first time in summer 2014.

William Powderly, MD, finds encouragement in what he calls “the keen student interest in having global experiences, in addressing global health challenges and in thinking of themselves as global citizens.”

Further, Iannotti works with Carolyn Lesorogol, PhD, associate professor and associate dean of global strategy and programs at the Brown School, to help place students in international practicum sites. Under Lesorogol’s leadership, the Brown School is working to build an inventory of deep-rooted, permanent international sites from which students may choose.
