MdPHA Member Hero Spotlight

Ali DiOrio

I am excited to serve on the board for the first time as secretary. As a Maryland transplant, I became a member of this wonderful organization in 2021. I have enjoyed meeting fellow Maryland public health professionals and working together to improve the health of our state residents. I am the accreditation coordinator for the University of Nevada, Reno’s School of Public Health. Prior to this role, I spent four and half years working at the accrediting organization for public health higher education. I have had the opportunity to travel the country, meet both academic and practice focused public health professionals, and evaluating curricula. I have also worked as an adjunct professor, a program manager for a reproductive health organization, and an analyst for a regional health insurance company. Each of my roles have had been rooted in quality improvement, which is very important to me. In addition to public health education, my research interests include social determinants and reproductive health.
