About Valery E Beau De Rochars

Dr. Madsen Beau De Rochars is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Services Research, Management and Policy at the College of Public Health and Health Professions University of Florida. At the Emerging Pathogens Institute, he is serving as coordinator for underground research activities in the research laboratory located in Gressier, Haiti to answer questions on public health matters in Haiti.

Prior to coming to the University of Florida as a faculty member, he was an Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) Officer for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In that role, he provided epidemiologic expertise, investigating, designing, developing, implementing, evaluating, and improving strategies to prevent and control disease risk factors and hazardous exposures and to control epidemics in Florida specifically and in the USA at large.

Before getting into EIS, he earned a M.P.H degree from the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University with a focus on Health Policy and Management; he also earned a M.D from State University of Haiti. He previously worked on the lymphatic filariasis (LF) program with CDC and the University of Notre Dame to map the distribution of LF in Haiti. In the dynamic to eliminate LF in Haiti, he led the first mass drug administration (MDA) started in Leogane Haiti; this pilot project served as a model for a scaling up a national MDA program throughout Haiti. He was instrumental in the success of implementing the Haitian national program; now, this program reaches all of Haiti for the first time, making elimination of LF an achievable goal.
