Arianna Unger, MPH is a PHI/CDC Global Health Epidemiology Fellow working with the Office of the Associate Director for Science in Mozambique. As part of her fellowship, Arianna will be collaborating with partners in Mozambique’s Ministry of Health (MISAU) and National Institute of Health (INS) (among others) to conduct an array of research projects on COVID-19, HIV, and STI screening. Arianna earned her bachelor’s in neuroscience from Brandeis University and her master’s in public health from the University of Pennsylvania. While pursuing her MPH, Arianna worked in Penn Medicine’s Neurosurgery Clinical Research Division, coordinating clinical trials which investigated novel diagnostic tools and therapies for patients with brain and spinal cord injuries. Arianna also worked in psychiatry research, contributing to studies which evaluated treatment options for OCD and depression. Arianna is very excited to gain global health experience through her new position at CDC Mozambique and feels very fortunate that the Fellowship will enable her to combine her interests in infectious disease epidemiology, clinical research ethics, and public health policy.

The PHI/CDC Global Health Fellowship Program is implemented for CDC by the Public Health Institute and its partner Consortium of Universities for Global Health.
