Cynthia “Robin” Rentrope, MPH, MSW, LSW is a PHI/CDC Global Health Security Fellow stationed in the CDC Global Health Center’s Emergency Rapid Response Branch’s Operations Unit in Atlanta. Her role in the unit includes global program management and monitoring and evaluation, working with international partners and across the CDC to build the capacity of emergency response systems to respond to humanitarian crises and disease outbreaks. As a Mandel Leadership Fellow of Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), Robin earned a dual MPH/MSW and graduate certification in nonprofit management. She has enjoyed working in program management, organizational change, and research coordination as a Peace Corps Volunteer for three years in Uganda, as a social worker in various human service nonprofits and healthcare systems, and as a co-investigator and supervisor in research labs focused on HIV and trauma at CWRU. Through these positions, Robin has been deeply involved in adapting, developing, and directing initiatives to address social determinants of health, gender-based violence, gender inequities in education and sexual and reproductive health, and social exclusion in HIV prevention and treatment services. She is excited to embark on this new journey through the fellowship to engage and learn with partners across the globe as they build relationships, strategies, and tools to strengthen coordinated responses to our world’s most pressing global health challenges. Through this fellowship, she aims to fine-tune her skills in global health operations, gaining expertise in partnership building, strategic planning, and monitoring, evaluation, and learning, as well as continue to expand her professional toolkit and network as a change agent to create more equitable and innovative health and social systems.

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.
