Midwest AIDS Prevention Project’s (MAPP) program coordinator, Brianne A. Moore, has been awarded a slot in a nationwide leadership institute that provides comprehensive, capacity building education designed specifically for HIV prevention program managers who work in community-based organizations.
The Institute for HIV Prevention Leadership is a part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), through a cooperative agreement with the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH).
The yearlong program covers prevention, strategic planning and management and includes four weeks of on-site instruction at the CDC in Atlanta. The application process was extremely competitive.
“I am very excited, and proud, that Brianne has been accepted into the Institute,” said Craig Covey, MAPP CEO. “Not only will it strengthen MAPP, but Brianne’s career in HIV/AIDS and health promotion as well.”
Moore just returned from the first week of the Institute and was impressed with the caliber of her colleagues and quality of instruction. “This is an intense program that requires a lot of work, but it’s an invaluable experience. I’m excited to bring back and apply what I learned at the Institute to MAPP and the community.”
Moore began her work at MAPP in 2005 as a social work intern and was hired full-time in April 2006 as a program coordinator. In her current role, duties include program development, quality assurance, outreach, counseling and testing, and coordinating WAGS (Wonderful Animals Giving Support). Moore has a master’s degree in social work from Wayne State University and a Bachelor of Arts in Interpersonal Communications.
