Breanne Lesnar, MPH
Breanne volunteered at the Curamericas Guatemala project site for two months in the summer of 2017. She worked alongside staff to update the maternal complications registry, pilot test a positive deviance interview tool, and conduct maternal and child health education outreach in the community. She also interpreted for nurses in the Casa Materna clinic. She especially enjoyed playing soccer and basketball with the lively Casa Materna staff in the evenings.
As a volunteer, Breanne was moved by the passionate dedication of the Guatemalan staff and impressed to witness the successful deployment of Curamerica’s Community-Based, Impact-Oriented approach firsthand. Breanne is excited to support Curamerica’s positive global impact on health by joining the Board of Advisors.
Breanne currently works as a Program Coordinator for Research Engagement with AVAC, a global advocacy nonprofit organization for HIV prevention. She holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Community Health Education & Promotion and Spanish from Central Michigan University and a Master’s of Public Health from the University of North Carolina.
