Marguerite Pappaioanou Helps Develop the Next Generation
Marguerite Pappaioanou, DVM, PhD, EIS '83, is currently teaching at the University of Washington School of Public Health, Center for One Health Research, in Seattle. She has more than 34 years of experience working on domestic and global public issues, including 24 years as an epidemiologist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Throughout her distinguished career, Dr. Pappaioanou has studied and applied the interconnectedness of human and animal health to improve global health. Dr. Pappaioanou recognizes that veterinarians are uniquely equipped to work at the intersection of human, animal and environmental health, and she enthusiastically encourages aspiring veterinarians to pursue exciting and rewarding careers in public health—both domestically and globally.
In 2013, Dr. Pappaioanou made a generous gift to establish the Pappaioanou Veterinary Public Health and Applied Epidemiology Fellowship with the CDC Foundation. This fellowship allows veterinarians to work at CDC and explore a career in public health. Dr. Pappaioanou continues to make gifts annually and encourages friends and colleagues to support the fellowship as well. Through the CDC Foundation, she has named the fellowship as the beneficiary of her IRAs.
Dr. Pappaioanou's goal is to improve health in each discipline-human, animal and environmental health—by educating and offering support to the next generation of veterinarians in public health. She deeply believes that having veterinarians at the table in public health is critical.
Dr. Pappaioanou says, "I am deeply appreciative of the contributions friends and colleagues have made to the fellowship, and thrilled that through this fund veterinarians will have support to pursue exciting opportunities at CDC to improve human health and wellbeing, and the environment in which we all live."
