Kathrine Tan, M.D.The increase in global travel and migration the past few decades has brought with it mobility of pathogens and vectors. Now, more than ever, medical and public health systems must work together to address these new health threats.

Dr. Kathrine Tan is Chief of the Domestic Response Unit in the Malaria Branch at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). She leads the development of guidelines for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of malaria, provides subject matter expertise for outbreak response and to other government agencies, and provides clinical consultations nationwide.

During her 15 years at CDC, Dr. Tan has worked on the control and prevention of malaria and tuberculosis, received hands on training on global epidemiology and outbreak response as an Epidemic Intelligence Service Officer, and evaluated Atlanta area isolation and quarantine policies as a Prevention Medicine Resident. Through all of this, she learned the importance of advancing the partnership between medical and public health worlds for effective disease control.

Dr. Tan is a proud U.C. Davis alumna, having studied at the university for both her undergraduate and medical degrees, and trained at the Family and Community Medicine Residency Program. She lives in Atlanta with her husband, who is a U. C. Davis Pediatrics Residency alumna, and two children.
