Fellows & Students
  • Kathleen “Kat” Peters
    Research Administrative Assistant
    WASH Certificate Coordinator
    Center for Global Safe WASH

    Kathleen Peters has more than 20 years of experience working in the public, private and academic sectors. She has been working in public health since 2000 and at the Rollins School of Public Health since 2007. She began working in public health at the DeKalb County Board of Health’s Center for Public Health Preparedness (2000-2006). While there, she worked with faculty and staff at the Rollins School of Public Health in the SORT program (Student Outreach and Response Team) which introduced public health students to local public health practice, including local emergency preparedness and response. The SORT program has since been adopted by RSPH and is now the Student Outbreak and Response Team. She also helped develop the DeKalb-Fulton Bioterrorism Response Plan, the “Local Heroes” public health social marketing program, assisted in the Hurricane Katrina refugee response at Dobbins AFB, and managed logistics for mock public health emergency exercises (EOCs). After leaving DCBOH, she worked with the Flour Fortification Initiative at Emory University, a global network of public, private and civic partners working to improve micronutrient malnutrition through fortification of staple foods. She currently supports the faculty and research staff of the Center for Global Safe Water as the Research Administrative Assistant and the WASH Certificate Coordinator.

    **Many additional staff who work at the CGSW are highlighted on the research program websites of their particular faculty mentors and supervisors.**
