Speaker: Dr. Youngji Jo. Bio: Youngji Jo is a postdoctoral (BU-CHART) fellow, working on evaluating the health and economic impacts of differentiated service delivery models for HIV treatment on the AMBIT project, and on infectious disease (COVID-19, HIV, Tuberculosis) transmission and health economics focused projects with Dr. Brooke Nichols and Dr. Robert Horsburgh. Her expertise and interests include integrating the principles and methods of epidemiology, health systems and economic evaluations to inform decision making for public health policy. She received her doctoral degree and postdoctoral training from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health where she developed and applied various disease modeling and cost effectiveness analyses to evaluate public health programs. She is passionate about understanding the underlying processes and mechanisms that contribute to outcome, beyond simple association and prediction, and developing a health system and cost effectiveness model that accounts dynamic trajectories of supply and demand side factors (drivers/barriers) to help design and implement HIV/TB prevention and treatment in resource limited settings.
