Janet Sumo, MPH is a PHI/CDC Program Management Fellow, working with the CDC’s Department of Global Health Protection (DGHP) and Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) to train public health leaders in field epidemiology to better detect and respond to urgent global health threats at federal, state, and local levels, including the COVID-19 pandemic.  Prior to the CDC, Janet worked for Covenant House New York as a Healthcare Project Manager. As the largest provider serving youth experiencing homelessness, she streamlined its healthcare processes, implemented new platforms to enhance data accuracy and managed the administration of Covid-19 vaccines to the local community.  Janet has more than seven years of experience in healthcare; over three years in project management, with experience in health program operations and coordination, process enhancement initiatives, field training, and data analysis and reporting.  Janet earned her MPH in Public Health Policy and Management from the City University of New York (CUNY) and holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology from North Carolina Central University. On a more personal note, Janet grew up in Liberia during the civil war and moved to the United States for a better future. With years of studying French language, Janet is keen on leveraging her multi-cultural background and public health experience globally at the CDC and FETP, to help protect the health and well-being of vulnerable and marginalized populations.

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.
