The PHTT 2017 Core Team is proud to introduce our very own advisor, Andrea Leinberger-Jabari. She currently serves as Assistant Director for Tobacco Research at NYUAD, where she studies the usage and behaviour surrounding tobacco products in the UAE. She received a Master of Public Health (MPH) from the University of Minnesota School of Public Health, focusing on epidemiology and community health education. Prior to NYUAD, Andrea worked at The Rockefeller University Center for Clinical and Translational Science and the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at the University of Minnesota. She has additionally been engaged with multiple community-based initiatives and health promotion projects, including healthcare access, childhood obesity and tobacco risk reduction.
During the PHTT conference, Andrea will additionally be leading a workshop about the public health field and how to design a successful intervention. We look forward to learning more about these topics and hope you are too!
