Michael has been with Pfizer since 2005 and is a Director in the Worldwide Policy division. His work focuses on economic analysis surrounding managed care issues and health reform. Previously, Michael worked in Pfizer's management science and global market analytics group. Over the years, Michael has embraced volunteer work as a math and reading tutor and more recently as an animal rescue volunteer. Of his upcoming GHF experience, Michael says "I am looking forward to using my research skills to improve health programs for women and children in Ethiopia. I have always had an interest in public health and hope to gain a deeper understanding of the barriers to care and the opportunities to improve health care delivery abroad."
IntraHealth has served the public health needs of developing countries for nearly 30 years. With an original focus on women's and children's health, IntraHealth's work has broadened to include innovative solutions in accessing basic health care and strengthening human resources for health and interventions for HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases.
