Jelena MalogajskiEducation Director
Dr. Jelena Malogajski serves as the Educational Director of the Planetary Health Alliance, where her role involves actively contributing to the momentum of expanding and integrating the Planetary Health education into international medical, nursing, and public health curricula through the Planetary Health Expand initiative.
With over ten years of experience in academia, she possesses an extensive background in public health research and teaching, global health, curriculum development and evaluation, and an unwavering commitment to health equity and human rights.
Jelena's interest in global and planetary health has been heavily influenced not only by her educational background but also by her experience of living and working in the public health field in three vastly different countries: Serbia, the Netherlands, and the United States. Before embarking on an academic career, she worked as a primary care practitioner and a public health physician in Serbia.
Jelena received her medical degree from Belgrade University Medical School in Serbia, her MSc in Health Policy, Economics, and Management, and a PhD in Public Health Genomics from Maastricht University in the Netherlands.
