Malaria No More names new CEO

Malaria No More, a non-government organization determined to end malaria deaths in Africa, appointed Dr. David Bowen as its new chief executive officer starting November 28.

"Malaria No More came on the malaria scene five years ago and changed the way the world thinks about malaria," Bowen said. "I'm incredibly excited to join the team and to build upon Malaria No More's history of innovation to find new ways to help the world defeat the disease."
Bowen was most recently the Deputy Director for Global Health Policy and Advocacy at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Prior to that position, he was the staff director for health of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. Bowen received his undergraduate education at Brown University and earned a PhD in neurobiology at the University of California - San Francisco.
"On behalf of the Malaria No More board of directors, I am thrilled to welcome David to the team," Peter Chernin, the chairman of Malaria No More's board of directors, said. "David is uniquely suited to lead our effort to ensure that no child dies of malaria, a preventable and treatable disease. He joins our organization as we build upon our work to raise awareness, promote continued support for U.S. leadership in the fight against malaria, and make investments that have real impact in the lives of families in Africa."
