Adam Johnson, MPH
From 2017 to 2018, Mr. Johnson supported logistics for TEPHINET’s now completed Zika portfolio, focusing on rolling out FETP Frontline, risk communication, lab systems strengthening and vector control surveillance projects in Latin America and the Caribbean. His current portfolio supports contractual needs for projects on non-communicable diseases (NCDs), National Public Health Institute development (NPHID), operational support to multiple FETPs, and more. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration in international business with a minor in Spanish from Southern Adventist University, a master’s degree in public health with a health management and policy concentration from Georgia State University and will soon pursue his juris doctor.
Before his public health career, he worked as a paralegal in Chattanooga, Tennessee and worked in Hachinohe, Japan with the Council of Local Authorities for International Relations and Board of Education as an English teacher. His passion for service in international fields is what helped propel him into the global health sector. He is also gifted with foreign language having learned English, Japanese and Spanish fluently from childhood. In his free time, he is a part-time acrobatic gymnastics coach and loves to work with children on healthy living habits.
