SANTA ROSA, CA | September 07, 2023

Brittany Lobo, a section manager in the Sonoma County Department of Health Services, has been recognized as one of the top rising public health leaders in the nation. Lobo was included in the de Beaumont Foundation’s 40 Under 40 in Public Health list, which was announced today.

Lobo oversees the Community and Family Health section, which has a staff of 62 and includes programs such as Women, Infants and Children; Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health; Healthy Eating, Active Living; and Vital Statistics. She successfully applied for two grants in the past year, bringing nearly $250,000 into Public Health to support workforce development and provide car seats to low-income families.

“Brittany is a talented public health professional who has created a culture of care and trust within her section. She supports her staff so that they can successfully implement their programs and strategies,” said Tina Rivera, director of the Department of Health Services. “She has had many impressive accomplishments just within the past year, and she could not be more deserving of this recognition.”

In addition to Lobo, the program’s honorees include epidemiologists, program managers, researchers, and policy analysts. The class was selected for their leadership and impact on their community’s health.

“The professionals chosen for the 40 Under 40 in Public Health Class of 2023 demonstrate the determination, commitment, innovation, and resilience of the public health field,” said Brian C. Castrucci, DrPH, president and CEO of the de Beaumont Foundation.
