SETC President-Elect

SETC President-Elect:
Katelynne Gardner Toren, MPH


Katelynne is the lead epidemiologist for tuberculosis surveillance and outbreak response at Public Health Seattle & King County Tuberculosis Program where she has worked since receiving her MPH in Epidemiology from the University of Washington six years ago. While Katelynne’s interest in infectious disease goes back to her high school days, her passion for TB solidified while doing TB bench research in Uganda. Katelynne’s work currently focuses on data system development and management, outbreak investigations, process improvement, and community engagement strategies with a focus on civil surgeon reporting and LTBI awareness. She enjoys a good data analysis, but also really values engaging with the community through contact investigations and educational outreach efforts.  Katelynne serves as the chair for the NTCA Survey Committee. Outside of work, Katelynne spends her time reading, taking neighborhood walks, and trying to convince her three-year-old that quiet time can be fun. Katelynne really appreciates the connections made through membership in SETC and looks forward to building even more.
