Kelsi Mowreader, MPH, is a PHI/CDC Global Health Security Fellow for the Global Epidemiology, Laboratory and Surveillance Branch, based out of the CDC headquarters in Atlanta. Before going on to earn an MPH in Global Health from Boston University, Kelsi capped off her Bachelor of Science in Public Health and started her career by impulsively moving to Uganda to do field M&E for an NGO after winning $12,000 on a scratch-it lottery ticket. It was the first time she had ever left the United States and sparked a passion for global health research. As a Research Fellow at the Center for Infectious Disease Research in Zambia, Kelsi oversaw two small sub-studies under an expansive Gates Foundation study of loss-to-follow-up patients in the nation’s HIV Treatment program. Later, while working for the Clinton Health Access Initiative in Malawi, she provided technical assistance to the Ministry of Health in optimizing HIV testing resource allocation and in developing the National Strategic Plan, HIV Testing Guidelines, and Global Fund Application. She is excited for the shift in focus and the new challenges working within the GELSB will provide.

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.
