Dr. Roth will spend her fellowship year at the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka under the mentorship of Manhattan Charurat, PhD and Lloyd Mulenga, BScHb, MBChB, MSc, MMed, PhD.

Her career goals are to understand the epidemiological risk factors for AMR in PLWH and use this information to inform and improve clinical care and treatment with the broader goal of improving antibiotic use and developing strategies to reduce AMR.
