Public Health Epidemiology Conversations

Oct 12, 2021

The world of public health has many avenues and much potential for learning beyond its own confines. In this episode, Dr. Huntley has a conversation with Dr. Jacqueline Kerr to learn about her interesting and surprising journey through parts of the public health space. 

Dr. Kerr currently works as a consultant helping her clients create sustainable and scalable change on an organizational level, and she also hosts her very own podcast, Overcoming Working Mom Burnout. The topic of burnout and its prevention has been a more recent area of exploration for Jacqueline, and she discusses how her own experience of these hurdles informed and inspired her work. 

Dr. Kerr is in the top 1% of most-cited scientists, achieving her Masters and Ph.D. in the United Kingdom before coming to the United States in 2004 for a postdoctoral fellowship. Later she worked at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine, transitioning out of that role in 2018 to focus on her own business. 

Her main focus is now on grant writing and the mentorship of academic clients, admitting that her preference is working on the systematic and communal level rather than as a one on one coach. So to hear it all from an energized expert, passionate about the way public health can change the world, listen to the full conversation in this episode!
