Ariana Gobaud,  Second Year EPI MPH

Practicum Name and Organization: “Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis Provider Inquiries in the United States: A Cross-Sectional Analysis of Expert Medical Consultations, 2013-2017” at the CDC Division of TB Elimination, Field Services Branch

My Experience: Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the oldest diseases, and we are lucky that the rates of incidence are so low in the U.S. These low rates, however, mean that healthcare providers are not well trained in diagnosing and providing treatment for patients with TB. The CDC funds 5 centers to provide expert medical consultation and training to assist US providers in the management of TB. Medical consultations are saved as text documents in an online database. I quantitatively and qualitatively  analyzed consultations provided specifically for multi-drug resistant (MDR) TB from 2013-2017 to identify the provider type, setting of caller, and year of the call, and to identify main themes of consultations regarding MDR TB. This week I am presenting these findings at the National TB Conference in Atlanta!

What’s Next for me:I will be attending Columbia in the Fall for my PhD in Epidemiology.

Congratulations, Ariana! The Epi Department will miss you!
