Hannah joined the Cancer Research Institute in June 2013 as a development associate, where she works closely with the chief executive officer and other members of the development team to support the annual, planned, and major giving programs. Prior to her role at CRI, Hannah coordinated global health programs in women’s cancers for the American Cancer Society.

Hannah received her MPH in 2012 from Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health after serving as a public health volunteer with the United States Peace Corps in Kenya. As a graduate student, Hannah designed and implemented a research study on the use of traditional African medicine among HIV patients receiving antiretroviral therapy at an HIV clinic in Durban, South Africa. She also worked as a graduate research assistant for the Emory Prevention Research Center, where she helped implement a controlled trial of a lifestyle intervention to prevent weight gain in rural, Southwest Georgia. Hannah received her B.A. in 2006 from Cornell University, where she majored in Linguistics and Cognitive Studies.

“I am thrilled to be joining an organization that has been at the cutting edge of cancer immunotherapy research for decades. I look forward to helping sustain and advance CRI’s contributions to this fascinating field at a pivotal time.” — Hannah
