UK Student Receives CDC Fellowship

Published: Apr 23, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 23, 2013) — Kristina Rabarison, a doctoral candidate at the University of Kentucky College of Public Health, has been accepted to the 2013 Class of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Steven M. Teutsch Prevention Effectiveness Fellowship. 

 

This competitive, two-year postdoctoral research fellowship focuses on the application of quantitative methods to the science of health protection, health promotion and disease prevention.The fellowship was established in 1995 and has graduated more than 100 individuals.

 

Most fellows hold doctoral degrees in economics or applied economics, public policy analysis, operations research or industrial engineering, health services research, mathematics, or a related, quantitatively oriented field. The fellowship is extremely competitive; this year more than 100 applications were received for the 17 positions.

 

“This fellowship, with access to CDC expertise and experts, will give me the opportunity to join a team working at the forefront of current public health issues,” Rabarison said. “The mentoring, training and academic preparation I received at the University of Kentucky has helped to prepare me for this fellowship, and the flexibility of the program allowed me to tailor it to meet my specific needs and interests. My mentors, Drs. Julia Costich, Glen Mays, and Douglas Scutchfield, and Ms. Cynthia Lamberth are Public Health Services and Systems Research pioneers and have provided me invaluable guidance."

 

Rabarison will be at the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Division of Population Health, Applied Research and Translation (ART) Branch. The Division of Population Health is charged with managing programs that provide cross-cutting, chronic disease and health promotion expertise.

 

Rabarison will be working on projects related to Prevention Research Centers (PRC), including the measurement of their intervention impact and the development of common economic measures for PRCs, as well as projects in the Healthy Aging and Worksite Health Programs.
