Administrative Program Specialist
"My undergraduate and graduate school experience taught me that positive health outcomes can be achieved when modern public health problems are seen through an ecological perspective."
Ms. Lillian Paine graduated 2005, BA in Psychology and 2013, Master's of Public Health in Community and Behaviorial Promotion.
I am the premiere Master of Public Health Graduate of the Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health. As one of the pioneering students, it has been a thrilling experience to partake in laying the foundation for future generations of public health leaders. As an early career public health professional, I work in the area of infant mortality.
I direct the cross-sector engagement, technical assistance and training efforts of the Lifecourse Initiative for Healthy Families Regional Program Office which is a program of the Center for Urban Population Health. My primary work is that of developing and implementing strategies that will lead to long-term involvement of community institutions, organizations and individuals in health promotion, assessment, and evaluation activities. Moreover, I am responsible for providing oversight and support for Milwaukee, Beloit, Kenosha, and Racine Collaboratives.
I strongly believe that it is important to take into consideration the historical context of any health problem. By doing so, we can explore the fundamental causes of health disparities. All people have the right to health.
