Nessa Ryan, MPH, PhD is a PHI/CDC Global Health Epidemiology Fellow, working on the Demand for Immunization team within the Immunization Systems Branch (ISB) of the Global Immunization Division (GID) of CDC-Atlanta. Nessa comes to us from New York University where she completed her PhD in Epidemiology and a post-doc fellowship in Global Implementation Science. Nessa will be working with her team on carrying out innovative applied epidemiologic research and implementation and behavioral science to assess factors contributing to vaccine hesitancy, and to develop, implement and evaluate behavioral interventions to improve vaccine confidence and uptake globally. Nessa is excited to contribute to the new field of infodemiology to understand how misinformation and disinformation spread through social networks and to develop cognitively based interventions to address and manage infodemics. Nessa speaks conversational French.

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.
