Introducing Jonathan Altamirano
The Global Child Health Program welcomed a new team member, Jonathan Altamirano, in December 2015.
Jonathan received his B.A. in Human Biology and M.S. in Biology from Stanford University. He serves as the research data analyst for the ongoing polio project in Mexico, which includes database management and statistical analysis.
His interest in medicine, public health, and global child health comes from living in Nicaragua as a child and both seeing and experiencing the effects of tropical vector-borne diseases. Originally from Houston, TX, Jonathan is a native Spanish speaker. Dr. Maldonado’s international work is particularly interesting to him, and he’s learned so much already about the challenges of working abroad. He hopes to go to medical school, and continue to work in global child health as an MD.
