Hello! I’m Allison Russo. I believe the heart and spirit of humanity is what will unite us and carry us through this crisis, and I believe science will lead the way.
Before I was the State Representative for Ohio’s 24th District, my education and career was in public health. I received a Master’s Degree in Public Health from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, with a concentration in epidemiology. (Epidemiology is the study of trends, patterns, and causes related to disease in populations.) I received my Doctor of Public Health degree from George Washington University while researching how to provide the best healthcare to the greatest number of people – without breaking the bank.
The resources below are my effort to give you a shortcut to some of the best information available about this disease and how we’ll get through it. Please share widely and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
