Christine Ameduri, Advisor
Christine has broad public health experience, and a passion for bringing healthcare to the world’s poor. Christine has worked with diverse underserved populations, in addition to private family medical practice. In the remote town of Kotzebue, Alaska, which is inaccessible by roads, Christine provided healthcare to native Eskimos, provided radio and air support to locally-trained village health aids, and stabilized critical emergency cases for transport. She also provided medical care to Navajos on their reservation, through the Indian Health Service, and to the local Chamorros of Guam. Christine did a rotation of high-risk obstetrics at Los Angeles County Hospital, which served mostly Hispanic migrant workers and many undocumented immigrants. She also worked at a community health clinic in Salt Lake City, which provided healthcare to the underserved on a sliding-fee scale, and which served many Southeast Asian refugees.
Christine earned an MD from the Medical College of Ohio, and a Masters of Public Health from the University of Utah. In addition to practicing medicine, she has taught, lectured, and consulted with companies regarding healthcare delivery. She has traveled throughout the world, including kayaking in the Gulf of Alaska, climbing El Capitan, backpacking through rural China, and scuba diving in the barrier reefs of Palau. For fun, she enjoys reading, hiking, volunteering with science fairs to encourage the next generation of scientists and healthcare providers, and spending time with her three children.
