Rebecca Drewette-Card, DrPH, President
Rebecca Drewette-Card is the President of Public Health Partners. Her public health career has taken her around the country, but she has lived in Maine since 2004.
Rebecca spent three years working for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the Public Health Prevention Service, has worked in state health departments in New Mexico, Oregon, North Carolina and Maine, as well as at a small college and a large university. Rebecca’s career has given her both breadth and depth of experience, which has provided her with opportunities to develop a wide-range of public health skills including social marketing, report-writing, intervention development, coalition-building, program planning, evaluation, conference and training development, and public speaking.
Much of Rebecca’s work has focused on promoting active living and healthy eating through the implementation of strategies at various levels of the Socio-Ecological Model. She has provided statewide leadership on evidence-based physical activity practice; she is an exceptional project manager and team leader.
Rebecca received her Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) at Boston University, where her dissertation was titled Strategic Planning to Improve the Physical Activity Behaviors of Rural Adolescents in Maine. She earned her Master of Science in Public Health (MSPH) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she was honored for her scholarly excellence with induction into Delta Omega, the national public health honor society, and her Bachelor of Arts (BA) from Gettysburg College.
Rebecca lives with her husband, two young daughters, and their four-legged family members. Find her on LinkedIn here.
