Interested in policy evaluation or learning how to build an organization from the ground up? Curious about the Presidential Management Fellowship or the role of a Public Health Advisor? Come learn about this and more at our Public Health Perspectives Speaker Series with Ali Abazeed, Founding Director of Dearborn Public Health. Ali Abazeed is the Founding Director of the newly launched Dearborn Department of Public Health (DPH). A Dearborn native, he recently moved from Washington D.C. where he served as a Public Health Advisor at the National Institute of Health (NIH). He joined public service as a Presidential Management Fellow (PMF) and has worked across the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in the Office of Secretary, Office of Refugee Resettlement, and the Assistant Secretary for Policy and Evaluation. He has led a health and social policy portfolio ranging from homelessness eradication, the health of rural and tribal America, cancer prevention and control, and mitigating the effects of global refugee crisis. Prior to joining the federal government, Ali served as an advisor at the Detroit Health Department where he bolstered efforts to reverse water shutoffs and revitalize human services following the city's bankruptcy. He developed robust comparative perspectives working on maternal and child health with the United Nations refugee camps of Lebanon. Ali is a three-time graduate of the University of Michigan earning a MPH, MPP, and a BS. The Dearborn Public Health Department was formally launched in April 2022 and Dearborn is only the second city in Michigan with a formal health department, and the first to launch one voluntarily. The Dearborn Public Health Department is piloting a health-in-all policies approach, a collaborative approach that integrates and articulates health considerations into policymaking across sectors to improve the health of the Dearborn public.
