The campus community is invited to attend. Those interested should contact Dr. Joseph Byonanebye, program director.

Burke has pioneered new residency programs in health policy for the Southern California region. She is director of the Leaders for Health Equity Fellowship, an international health sector fellowship funded by the Atlantic Philanthropies. A board-certified emergency physician, she provides clinical care in traditional and telemedicine encounters through the GW Department of Emergency Medicine’s ConnectER program, a unique offering that expands access to care for emergency patients. Burke is also president-elect of the District of Columbia American College of Emergency Physicians.

The Marquette University Public Health and Equity Fellowship has selected seven undergraduate and three graduate students from various departments on campus to engage in a yearlong fellowship program focused on the COVID-19 pandemic and health equity research related to racial injustice. Professors mentoring in this program come from multiple disciplines across campus.
