Courtney Yuen, PhD, is an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School and an associate epidemiologist in the Division of Global Health Equity at the Brigham and Women's Hospital. Prior to this, she worked in the Division of Tuberculosis Elimination at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Yuen has been involved in important research on the global epidemiology of childhood drug-resistant tuberculosis, contributing to estimates of the global burden of childhood multidrug-resistant and isoniazid-resistant tuberculosis and the risk of disease among children who live in the households of adults with drug-resistant tuberculosis. She has worked with tuberculosis programs in both the United States and international settings to help them effectively implement contact investigations and preventive therapy. She currently works with partners in Kenya and Peru to implement and measure the impact of tuberculosis case-finding and preventive therapy interventions.
