Jaime Bodden, MPH, MSW [Preceptor]

Jaime Bodden is the Health Officer/Director for the Shawano-Menominee Counties Health Department and current preceptor for Lauren Lamers. The first consolidated health department of the state, the Shawano-Menominee Counties Health Department serves a population of approximately 50,000. New to the position in October 2013, Jaime has previous work in St. Louis, working for the Open Streets Initiative and the Missouri State Senate. Jaime received her Master of Public Health and Master in Social Work from the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis. Her primary interests include community engagement and health promotion, the social determinants of health, and access to health – particularly in rural populations. Much of her experience has been in global health – she served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Senegal and recently worked with USDA on a micronutrient project in Haiti. She’s excited to put her nomadic ways aside for awhile and be back in her home state, working with rural populations on a vast array of health issues.
