MSH CEO Marian Wentworth was interviewed by Global Health NOW. Part 1 of the interview was published today.

Marian Wentworth’s journey to leading Management Sciences for Health, the global health NGO that works in 36 countries, didn’t have a typical beginning.

Her degree? Mathematics. Her first job after college? Working consultant on operations management for Arthur D. Little, Inc. She followed that up with 27 years at the pharmaceutical giant, Merck. While there, she worked her way up from being a research analyst to leading marketing for the cervical cancer vaccine, Gardasil, and ultimately serving as vice president for Merck’s global vaccines strategy.
