Suzanne Manneh, MPH, a Public Health Professional, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Healthcare Providers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in public health and social welfare.
Ms. Manneh earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Berkeley and decided to pursue a Master of Public Health from San Francisco State University in 2016, after five years of experience working for a national non-profit organization.
Most recently in her career, Ms. Manneh was a health program planner for the San Francisco Department of Public Health. In this role, she advanced initiatives including performance improvement in public health services and increasing food security among low-income pregnant women and other priority populations. She also led the triennial community health improvement plan. Prior to this, Ms. Manneh was a trilingual case manager, providing wraparound care, helping hundreds of families experiencing homelessness obtain vital resources, including access to stable housing, therapy and health care, childcare, food, and employment training services.
While in graduate school, Ms. Manneh taught undergraduate students on the social determinants of health and co-led campus-wide policy change for the acceptance of EBT. In addition, she co-authored a book chapter for Oxford University Press, addressing the risks of English-only healthcare communication among Limited English Proficiency (LEP) communities, and was selected to a prestigious national cancer control academic research program. Ms. Manneh also has extensive experience in non-profit and philanthropy management. She was a volunteer consultant for Valdez Charitable Foundation for several years, supporting grant writing and strategic planning for international medical missions.
Upon reflection, the highlight of Ms. Manneh’s career involves the results of her work managing various health awareness campaigns and projects for overwhelmingly underrepresented high-priority populations. She oversaw a national educational campaign spanning seven states and 10 languages to empower hundreds of thousands of individuals to gain Medicaid coverage when the Affordable Care Act was signed into law; enabling them to understand these benefits, which subsequently became available to them. Ms. Manneh is committed to her work in public health and social welfare and strives to continue using her expertise and leadership skills advancing change for health equity.
