Resident Directors

Meagan Barry, MD, PhD
Meagan’s interest in global health began in college at Rice University, where she designed an elementary school health curriculum that she then implemented at the St. Barthelemy School in Terrier Rouge, Haiti. Before entering medical school, she spent time in Mali, investigating the seasonality of malaria infections. During her training in the Medical Scientist Training Program at Baylor College of Medicine, she completed the Diploma in Tropical Medicine course and earned the Certificate of Knowledge in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Travelers’ Health (CTropMed) from the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. Her PhD thesis was to develop a therapeutic vaccine against Chagas disease, and she spent time in Mexico developing the mouse research model of disease. Currently, she is investigating predictors of dehydration in adults with diarrhea in Bangladesh.

Jared Giordano, MD
Jared completed his undergraduate training at Georgetown University, where he participated in a Georgetown Medical Brigade to Honduras with the goal of providing quality health initiatives to communities that otherwise have limited access to health care. After attending University of Massachusetts Medical School, he entered the Internal Medicine Residency Programs at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. His research interests are in building antibiotic stewardship programs in low- and middle-income countries.
