Mabya Nyannor, MSPH, is a current PHI/CDC Global Health Monitoring and Evaluation Fellow with the Economics and Health Services Research Branch Team in the Division of Global HIV and Tuberculosis in CDC, Atlanta, GA. As a Fellow, she will assess health workforce capacity, review health policies that enable healthcare delivery, and evaluate data to better align Human Resources for Health (HRH) with PEPFAR health system needs in supported host countries. Mabya is a proud HBCU graduate with a Master of Science in Public Health from Meharry Medical College and a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Fort Valley State University. She also holds a Certificate of Health Policy from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. During her graduate studies, Mabya volunteered with the Meharry-Vanderbilt Alliance and served as a facilitator for stakeholder discussions around translating data into meaningful information to guide community health programmatic activities and implementation. She later worked in clinical research for Vanderbilt University Medical Center, coordinating studies centered on the effects of the built environment on increased asthma rates in pediatric minority populations. Mabya has unique exposure and experience in hospital administration and rural health care delivery, to include work as an Agenda 21 Program Intern with the Tennessee Hospital Association and from a global clerkship rotation with Michigan State University’s Institute for Global Health in Havana, Cuba. There, she comparatively explored Cuba’s public health and community medicine model through lecture and participation with Cuban health care officials and clinicians and on-site observation of the delivery of community health clinics, maternal health home stays, pediatric and geriatric care. Mabya has over seven years’ experience as an educator domestically and internationally, including rural Japan, St. Vincent & The Grenadines and within the refugee resettlement community in Clarkston, GA. She attributes her pursuit of public health from what she learned from her students and their families. Mabya values cross-cultural communication and celebration and hopes to use her experience to help support efforts for equitable health policy and programming development aimed at addressing and improving dynamic health care delivery systems to meet diverse community health needs.

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.
