She also served as director of HIV/AIDS and Infant and Child Health for the state of Georgia, deputy director of public health in the British National Health Service, and the first coordinator of the Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies’ global HIV/AIDS program in Geneva. She is a 1971 graduate of Syracuse University and received her MPH from UNC Chapel Hill in 1979.
