Alida Austin

Program Assistant, Evidence to Action

Washington, DC

Alida Austin is a Program Assistant for the Evidence to Action (E2A) portfolio at the National Network of Public Health Institutes. In this role, she supports the E2A team by providing administrative assistance, logistics management, project related research and meeting coordination for a variety of projects. At NNPHI, she enjoys working on a wide range of topics and using varying skills to advance public health, and especially working towards health equity. She believes strongly that health equity is achieved when social, climate, economic and racial justice are a reality, and strives towards this goal both through her work and life.  

Alida graduated in 2022 from American University with her Bachelor of Arts in Public Health and Political Science. At AU, Alida became passionate about health equity, and the intersection of public health and public policy. Alida completed two internships during college that focused on reducing disparities in health. One internship was with Made to Save, a national COVID-19 vaccine equity campaign, and the second with the DC Center for the LGBTQ Community. Before college, she worked as an EMT in her community in Massachusetts, where she saw first-hand how the social determinants of health directly impact a person’s health outcomes. Alida looks forward to deepening her knowledge of public health practice, and learning from NNPHI staff, partners, and members throughout her time at NNPHI.
