Bethel Kebede, MPH, is a PHI/CDC Global Health Program Management Fellow within the Center for Global Health (CGH), in the Informatics and Information Resources Office (IIRO). After growing up in Ethiopia, Bethel came to America for higher education. She attended an HBCU, Virginia Union University, and gained a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology then went on to get a Master of Public Health from Virginia Commonwealth University focusing on Maternal and Child Health. As a research assistant at her graduate alma mater and other institutions, she worked on projects in the US, Mexico, and Ethiopia that focused on the experiences of women and youth from low-income backgrounds. In addition, she gained more experience as a research associate at WRMA Inc, a research firm dedicating their work to improving at-risk communities, contributing to efforts aiming to maintain and improve data collection systems for child and adult welfare infrastructures. Wanting to combine her cultural and professional experiences, she intentionally sought global health opportunities and went after the PHI-CDC Global Health Fellowship Program. She works with 10 countries across three continents to digitalize public health data collection systems and improve collaborative efforts that can lead to better integrated global efforts in disease prevention.

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.
