Irogue Igbinosa, M.D. was the 2015-2016 AAMC-CDC Public Health Policy Fellow in the CDC's Office of Chief of Staff on the Public-Private Partnerships Team. Her primary project was engaging corporate chief medical officers (CMOs) to evaluate the impact of partnerships with external healthcare organizations and the business community on addressing community needs. Dr. Igbinosa was also one of the OB/GYN physicians at CDC to serve on an extended detail in the Emergency Operations Center to support the Zika Pregnancy Defects Task Force. She contributed to various online resources for health care providers regarding Zika virus in pregnant women and infants, including three Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports (MMWRs ).

Dr. Igbinosa received her M.D. from Baylor College of Medicine and completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Louisiana State University. When asked about her fellowship experience, she says, “I am appreciative of the opportunity to have worked closely with dedicated professionals and subject matter experts in many aspects of public health. The hands-on experience provided by this fellowship has further equipped me with the skills and tools to advocate for my patients, their families, and communities.”
