Bethany Hedt-Gauthier, PhD
Associate Professor of Global Health and Social Medicine
Associate Professor in the Department of Biostatistics, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

Dr. Gauthier received a BS with distinction in mathematics from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 1999. Immediately following her undergraduate training, she served three years in the U.S. Peace Corps in Namibia, where she was introduced to the needs and challenges of global public health and the role of research in addressing these gaps. In 2003, she began a PhD program in biostatistics at Harvard School of Public Health. During this training, Dr. Hedt-Gauthier took a leave of absence to complete a fellowship in strategic information at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Malawi. She received her PhD in 2008 and completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in the same department in 2010.
