Erin Mann, MPH, has been recognized as one of the 40 Under 40 in Public Health in recognition of her work at the University of Minnesota. The de Beaumont Foundation announced its 2023 honorees on Sept. 7 after reviewing nominations from hundreds of leaders in public health. The new class was selected by a distinguished panel of public health professionals for their leadership and contributions to their community’s health.
“The professionals chosen for the 40 Under 40 in Public Health Class of 2023 demonstrate the determination, commitment, innovation, and resilience of the public health field,” said Brian C. Castrucci, DrPH, president and CEO of the de Beaumont Foundation. “Their work is strengthening communities and improving lives, and I look forward to following their careers and learning from them.”
"I love the work that I do, particularly the partnerships that I have had the honor of creating and fostering in the field of refugee and immigrant health," said Mann. "The best part of my job is working with community partners to find innovative ways to turn community expertise into practical resources for public health professionals."
Erin is the program manager and co-principal investigator for the National Resource Center for Refugees, Immigrants, and Migrants (NRC-RIM). NRC-RIM is funded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to support health departments and community organizations working with refugee, immigrant, and migrant communities that have been disproportionately affected by health inequities. Under Erin’s leadership, NRC-RIM has become nationally known for excellence in public health preparedness and response, and in fostering partnerships that make a real difference in the communities.
NRC-RIM is a program of the University of Minnesota’s Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility (CGHSR) and was established in 2020 as part of CGHSR’s ongoing collaboration with the CDC and the International Organization for Migration, an effort that Erin also manages as CGHSR’s Global Collaborations Coordinator.
Prior to these roles, Erin has managed global health and public health projects related to public health emergency preparedness and response, global medical supply chains, and bio-surveillance. Erin is a PhD student in infectious disease epidemiology at the University of Minnesota. She received her Master’s in Public Health from Boston University.
