Who We Are

The Center for Humanitarian Emergencies at Emory is a collaboration between faculty and staff, students, fellows, and alumni to build global response capacity.

As experienced humanitarian emergency response trainers, researchers and program implementers, Faculty and Staff guide students toward effective careers in the humanitarian field.    

Students explore emergency-related topics of infectious disease, nutrition, reproductive health, and WASH. They train in epidemiology, nursing, and program management.  

Coming to the Center for Humanitarian Emergencies from low- and middle-income conflict-affected countries, Fellows train for one year with the CDC’s Emergency Response and Recovery Branch and the Rollins School of Public Health.

After graduation, Alumni remain connected to the Center for Humanitarian Emergencies through established networks, outreach, and support.
