PublicHealthRising is about elevating public health for impact and equity.


It’s our platform to share our perspective on key public health issues, and it’s where we can provide information to people who might be seeking advisors or external consultants with our background. It’s a blog, it’s a business, and it’s an initiative that will keep taking shape as the art and science of public health adjust to the challenges we face. We’ve had the privilege of opportunity to live and work in communities across the U.S. and around the world, and to use our training in medicine and public health for rewarding, impactful, projects.


The mission of PublicHealthRising is to be part of the solution in the ongoing fight for equity, using our local and global perspectives and expertise in medicine and public health.

What we offer:

> Unvarnished, plain language expert opinion on public health and population medicine (check out our blog).

> Consulting for governmental and non-governmental public health organizations in the United States and abroad.

> Support for community-based and non-profit organizations.
