Si'itia is our only ELDP participant representing the public health sector. She currently serves as American Samoa's Public Health Emergency Preparedness Program Director, within ASG's Department of Health. As Program Director, Si'itia manages the budget, application, and reporting requirements needed to maintain grant support from U.S. Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as the day-to-day operations of the program and staff of six. Prior to working in emergency preparedness, Si'itia was a Medical Officer at the LBJ Medical Center in American Samoa. In both her prior work at LBJ and now, Si'itia continues to work with communities to promote primary health care, including organizing and running outreach wellness centers. Si'itia is able to conduct epidemiological studies, perform medical exams, conduct minor laboratory procedures, and diagnose and treat patients. With a Bachelors of Health Science degree from Brigham Young University in Utah and formal training in Pohnpei as a Medical Officer, we'll look to Si'itia to make sure all of the participants complete the first week of training without serious injury.
