Mr. Hussien is a happily married father of four who enjoys raising his children, camping, hiking, intellectual development, and endeavors of craftmanship. He previously worked in a health leadership capacity for the last twelve years within the United States Army. His extensive public health experience at the frontlines of health have been in both domestic and international settings with a focus on austere medicine, population targeted programming and community-based interventions. He holds a B.S. Sociology with a Pre-Professional Health Minor from Austin Peay State University and is completing his Master of Public Health with a concentration in Global Health from Southern New Hampshire University during his S.T.A.R. internship opportunity.
Mr. Hussien is a supporter of community health practitioner preparation and professional development in low- and middle-income countries. He noted the radical disparity in professional quality and performance of healthcare professionals across the allied health fields in conflict effected and postcolonial nations during military operations. He is dedicated to the future of an equal and collaborative Global Health environment wherein all nations can independently produce globally recognized public health professionals from nationally led programs of public health development. He hopes to drive this development with multinational partners by developing collaborative theoretical standards of public health professional education which can be applied globally and targeted nationally.
