Early in her career she planned and managed immunization programs for the NYC Department of Health and a refugee health assessment program for the Connecticut Department of Public Health. She then moved to the Connecticut General Assembly’s Office of Legislative Research where she staffed the Public Health Committee, supporting lawmakers in developing and analyzing health-related legislation.

More recently, she was part of a communications and marketing team at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center that designed its first-ever patient care website. Since 2009, Sue has been a public health consultant at Hunter College, assisting CUNY School of Public Health faculty with community-based partnerships and research projects and managing the annual Joan H.
