Arlene I. Greenspan, B.S. 1976

Arlene I. Greenspan, B.S. 1976, has been working at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as with U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) for the past 11 years. After receiving funds to begin an Injury Control Research Center (ICRC), Greenspan was hired as director of the ICRC to assist ICRC faculty with several projects studying long-term injury outcomes, including those involving brain and orthopaedic injuries. She then joined the USPHS’s Commissioned Corps and was commissioned a lieutenant of the CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS).

During a two-year program with the EIS, Greenspan learned epidemiology skills relevant to actual public health problems by conducting epidemiological investigations, along with research and public health surveillance. In 1996, she became a faculty member at Emory University’s School of Medicine, where she teaches in the division of physical therapy and co-teaches in the Neuroscience Graduate School. Greenspan was honored with a Public Health Service Commendation Medal in 1995 and has authored numerous professional articles. She resides in Decatur, GA.
