Biography

Anne Kelsey Lamb, MPH, is the Director of Regional Asthma Management and Prevention (RAMP), a project of the Public Health Institute. Serving as the Director since 2002, Ms. Lamb provides overall strategic guidance in working toward the organization’s vision and mission, ensuring a highly effective organization and innovative, successful programs. Emphasizing both prevention and management, Ms. Lamb leads RAMP in building capacity, creating linkages, and mobilizing networks to advance policy and systems change targeting the root causes of asthma disparities. Through both government and foundation grants, RAMP works to: advance comprehensive policies on housing quality, affordability and tenant protections; shape policies to reduce air pollution in inequitably burdened communities; and increase access to prevention-oriented services within health care, and advance workforce development for asthma professionals.

Prior to leading RAMP, Ms. Lamb worked at Kaiser Permanente, the National Tay-Sachs & Allied Diseases Association, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Genetics Program, and the Prevention Center of Boston. Ms. Lamb received a Master’s degree in Public Health from the University of Michigan.

“When we think about the recommendations that experts make during wildfire smoke events, a lot of those simply aren’t feasible for low-income residents,” explains PHI’s Anne Kelsey Lamb, highlighting how social determinants like substandard housing, limited transportation options and cost of air filtration units contribute to increased smoke exposures for low-income communities.
