About Jack Carew

Jack Carew (he/him/his) is a PhD student in the Department of Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases at Yale School of Public Health, where he focuses on the genetic aspects of vector-borne diseases. He holds an MPH from at the University of Vermont and has extensive experience in global health research in Jordan, Morocco, and Romania. In these settings, he conducted epidemiological studies of breast cancer, brucellosis, and cutaneous leishmaniasis and worked closely with national and international public health organizations.

His interests in public health are wide-ranging, spanning One Health, vector-borne diseases, climate change and climate migration, LGBTQ+ health, cancer prevention and screening, and health in humanitarian settings. Previously, Jack has consulted on breast cancer epidemiology in Jordan, National Cancer Institute grant writing, and a literature review of the health consequences of PM2.5 air pollution.

When he’s networking or applying for grants, he loves to read, hike, go backpacking in the mountains of Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York, watch sunsets, cook Palestinian food, and learn languages.
