Julia Zigman

Current Fellow

Julia Zigman is a Program Analyst on the HIV, STI, and Viral Hepatitis team at NACCHO, the National Association of County and City Health Officials. Working alongside federal and community partners through the Ending the HIV Epidemic initiative, Julia supports local health departments (LHDs) in cities with high HIV burdens to collaborate with and serve communities most impacted by HIV, including adolescents and young adults. Julia convenes subject matter expert advisory workgroups and communities of practice for LHD staff to facilitate peer-to-peer learning in HIV, STIs, and viral hepatitis prevention and care. She supports NACCHO’s mission by helping to advocate for LHDs, implement programs that meet their needs, and advance their ability to center health equity in their work.

NACCHO is the membership association for the nation’s nearly 3,000 local health departments (LHDs) in the United States. NACCHO’s vision is health, equity, and security for all people in their communities, and its mission is to be a leader, partner, catalyst, and voice for change for LHDs around the nation. NACCHO implements this vision and mission by advancing policy and practice in program areas devoted to community health, environmental health, public health infrastructure and systems, and public health preparedness.
