Anne Rimoin, professor at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health and director of the Fielding School-based UCLA Center for Global and Immigrant Health, has been recognized by PBS Southern California as a "modern trailblazer" for her work researching infectious diseases, including the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Rimoin has been researching and addressing infectious diseases in the Democratic Republic of the Congo since 2002; today, she is a leading voice on the COVID-19 pandemic, and is leading the COVID-19 Rapid Response Initiative at UCLA.

"I think that this is a public health imperative, being able to understand viruses that are emerging, understanding where they are coming from, how people are getting them," Rimoin said.
