Dr. Jeffrey Levi


Jeffrey Levi is a Professor in the Department of Health Policy at The George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services.

Professor Levi is at once an activist determined to make the public health and health care systems more responsive to those most in need and a teacher committed to training a new generation of health policy workers in research and practice. “I see my academic work as a continuation of the activist and policy work I have done throughout my career,” he says. “Teaching forces me to think and communicate more clearly about how I do my work; my research and practice keeps my teaching current and relevant to the future work of our students.” Among other faculty duties, he is director of the MPH Health Policy concentration.

Professor Levi also serves as senior policy advisor at Trust for America’s Health, which works to protect the health of the nation’s communities and to make disease prevention a national priority. He has been associate editor of the American Journal of Public Health, where he was responsible for reviewing all HIV-related articles. Prior to coming to GW in 1997, Professor Levi was deputy director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy and served in various executive capacities at the AIDS Action Council, the AIDS Action Foundation and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.
