Working as an Epidemiologist in both the Public Health and Hospital sectors, Alex provides a unique prospective and valuable experience to the team. As a county epidemiologist Alex has been involved in disease surveillance, data analysis, disease outreach/education, and outbreak response and management. Currently, Alex is the acting infection control practitioner for a health department Covid-19 Community Outbreak Response Team that works with community stakeholders to mitigate and respond to Covid-19 clusters and/or outbreaks.
In the hospital setting Alex works as the lone epidemiologist within a 14 hospital healthcare system that services populations spanning from Chicago to St. Louis. This opportunity has allowed Alex to be engaged in the development of disease surveillance and reporting systems, participate in Covid-19 research, assist in developing disease impact analytical models, as well as work closely with infectious disease physicians and infection control practitioners engaged in patient care.
His experience is supplemented by years of infection control work in both the long term and acute care settings. During which time Alex was responsible for establishing facility wide infection control plans, performing disease surveillance and reporting, and providing staff with education and guidance on current industry best practices and evidence based infection control strategies.
