Welcome Betsy Abente, the DOLF Program’s new Global Health Program Manager for Administration and Finance

Betsy Abente, MPH

Joining the team in November, Betsy brings over 15 years of global health experience, including nearly a decade of research administration at Washington University to the team. In her previous role as Associate Director for the International Center for Child Health and Development, she helped develop and manage the center’s growing capacity building arm as well as handle the center’s communications and overall administration.  Prior to joining Washington University, she worked at several global health non-profits in Washington DC, backstopping global health programs across sub-Saharan Africa. Betsy’s passion for global health stems from her time as a Peace Corps volunteer in Kazakhstan, where she initiated an HIV peer education program and worked with local officials to include health programming within school curriculums. She received her Master’s degree in Public Health from Tulane University, with a focus on international health. Betsy is thrilled to join the DOLF Program and looks forward to supporting the team’s work to eliminate neglected tropical diseases in the global south.
