Michelle Latrice Allen joins the Cool Soror Podcast today. A dedicated member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., this Atlanta native serves as the Infectious Diseases Section Director for the Georgia Department of Public Health.
Before becoming director, Michelle’s career path was primarily in field services where she served for fourteen years. She presently oversees statewide prevention services to ensure all activities and initiatives work in unison toward the goals of the program collaboration and service integrations. Michelle also assists in the development of policies and procedures and directs planning and operational activities. She is a shining example of what it means to be a champion for public health as she continually strives to move the Georgia Department of Public Health from “Good to Great”.
Michelle is an advocate for the prevention of HIV & AIDS and goes in depth about the many lives she’s been able to touch along the way. She speaks about many of these life-changing experiences not only for the people she serves, but also for herself.
She knows that her life is to spread awareness about infectious diseases and continue to be at the forefront of preventative measures. Michelle can do so with ease because service is a part of her DNA. This is why she knows full well that she is blessed to be a blessing.
