Former Santa Clara County Public Health Official Selected as a White House Fellow
On Monday, the President's Commission on White House Fellowships named seven health care professionals to the 2015-2016 White House Fellows. One of the fellows was from California: Teeb Al-Samarrai, an epidemiologist and physician from Oakland who was deputy health officer and tuberculosis controller at the Santa Clara County Public Health Department. The fellowship program aims to give participants "first hand, high-level experience with the workings of the federal government and to increase their sense of participation in national affairs."
