CHOP's Jeanette Trella, PharmD, BCPPS Named a Bloomberg Fellow

Published on

We are proud to announce that Jeanette Trella, PharmD, BCPPS, Senior Director of the Center for Public Health Readiness and Response at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has been named a Bloomberg Fellow, a unique program and diverse network of change agents.image-jeanette-jrella-news-item-canonical.jpg

The Bloomberg American Health Initiative and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health recently announced its 2023 MPH and DrPH Bloomberg Fellows – 50 MPH fellows and 10 DrPH fellows from 25 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico will receive world-class public health training to tackle critical health issues across the country.

“This is an amazing recognition of Jeanette’s contributions to public health,” said Ron Keren, MD, MPH, attending physician, Senior Vice President, Chief Medical Officer, and holder of the Gerald D. Quill Distinguished Chair in the Department of Pediatrics at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. “She is the first clinician from CHOP to attain this great honor, and we know she will inspire others at CHOP to pursue this unique and important fellowship training.”

The Bloomberg Fellows program represents an innovative way to train the next generation of public health leaders, as it requires not only a commitment to public health practice from the students, but also a commitment of collaboration from the organizations for which they already work.

In September 2016, Bloomberg Philanthropies made a $300 million gift to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health on the occasion of the school’s 100th anniversary. The gift’s purpose was to improve health in the United States by focusing on 5 areas: addiction and overdose, violence, obesity and the food system, environmental challenges, and risks to adolescent health. All 5 areas of focus are serious health problems facing the nation, with deep connections to economic and social factors; none have quick fixes. In making this gift, Bloomberg Philanthropies sought to stimulate broader and more effective public health responses to these problems.
