In August 2022, the International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH) named the first members of an external advisory board (EAB). With decades of combined experience in infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, mental health, global development, strategy, and public health policy, the members of I-TECH’s EAB will help drive and support I-TECH’s future strategy and direction.
“We are excited to have such an experienced group of public health professionals on our advisory board,” says Dr. Pamela Collins, I-TECH Executive Director. “I anticipate that our Board will grow over time, and we look forward to welcoming the insights and unique perspectives of these members as we move into I-TECH’s next 20 years.”
The EAB’s current members include:
- Amie Bishop, MSW, MPH, is a Senior Research Advisor for OutRight Action International and has worked for a range of international non-governmental organizations and agencies, including DAI, FHI360, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, I-TECH, PATH, UNDP, UNICEF, and USAID.
