Dr. Hemant D. Mahajan joined the AIPH team in August 2018 and has a strong interest in chronic disease. He is a general physician who has completed MD Community Medicine from TN Medical College Mumbai, Maharashtra, India in 2012. He has worked for 2 years in Government medical colleges of Maharashtra as an Assistant Professor before leaving to the University of Pittsburgh, USA for a doctoral program in Epidemiology. He has finished DrPH in Epidemiology in 2017, where he focused on determinants of subclinical atherosclerosis measured by coronary artery- and aortic-calcification among middle aged Caucasians (US-White), US-Blacks, Japanese residing in Japan, and Japanese residing in Japan. In DrPH program, over the period of three and half years, he took advanced courses in epidemiology and biostatistics; worked as an intern in Allegheny County Health department, Pittsburgh and worked as a research assistant on very well-established cohorts: ‘MILES’ dealing with morbidity and disabilities among Indian geriatric population living in Telangana; ‘Pittsburgh EDC’ dealing with Type 1 diabetes complications; and ‘the ERA-JUMP study’ dealing with prevalence, incident and determinants of subclinical atherosclerosis among asymptomatic middle-aged men from Japan, USA, and South Korea. He has presented research findings at local and international conferences and published several papers in peer-reviewed high impact factor journals. Considering his performance in academics and on research front, the University of Pittsburgh has honoured him with ‘Delta Omega Award’ which reflects the dedication of an individual to increasing the quality of the field, as well as to the protection and advancement of the health of all people.
Apart from his research, he serves to the Board of Studies of the MPH and PhD programs at AIPH. He is also associated with numerous professional bodies as life member such as IAPSM and APHA.
