Alana Brennan, MPH, has over four years of experience working in the field of public health as a project leader and data analyst. Currently, Miss Brennan works for the Boston University’s Center for Global Health and Development in addition to being enrolled in the Epidemiology doctoral program. Her main focus is to apply biostatistics and epidemiological methods to evaluate aspects of HIV treatment using data from an open cohort of patients in South Africa. Miss Brennan has also been involved in key economic studies related to changing the South African national antiretroviral treatment guidelines, early vs. deferred pediatric antiretroviral treatment, and economic outcomes of patients receiving antiretroviral therapy for HIV/AIDS. Prior to her work in South Africa, Ms. Brennan worked for the Zambia Center for Applied Health Research and Development (ZCAHRD) on the Traditional Birth Attendant Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission study, which focused on training birth attendants to perform rapid saliva-based HIV tests at the onset of labor and dose both the mother and child with antiretroviral drugs if the results were positive to prevent transmission to the infant. Miss. Brennan holds a MPH with a concentration in epidemiology from Boston University, and a BA in biology from Knox College.
