Dominique Guillaume

Masters Degree Student, Duke University

In 2014 Dominique Guilliame graduated from the University of Maryland and worked at Emory Health Care as an acute care nurse, however her passion has always been in infectious disease prevention and after a few years she was fortunate to obtain a position working in HIV/AIDS treatment at the largest infectious disease center in the southeast. She has worked extensively on various projects primarily in Haiti focusing on HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, primary care, and disaster relief. She currently splits her time between Atlanta and Port-au-Prince where she runs a non-profit called Haiti Konbat Maladi which focuses on health education and disease prevention within communities in Haiti. Before graduating with her BSN in 2014, she worked as a non-profit government relations coordinator in Washington, D.C. where she did grant writing and capacity building for both local and international non-profit organizations. She is currently obtaining her MSN with a specialization in HIV/AIDS treatment from Duke University, and plan on pursuing her PhD within the next two years. She would like to conduct research focused on the effects of health policy and addressing social determinants of health in improving health outcomes throughout underserved communities.
