Nandi Marshall

Nandi Marshall is the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at Georgia Southern University, Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health where she is passionate about teaching the next generation of public health workers.

Nandi chose health education/health promotion as she wanted to learn more about the HIV/AIDS pandemic. She wanted to be part of the solution and took advice from her dad to look into public health education and promotion. She started by earning her bachelor’s at Spelman College, then her MPH at East Stroudsburg University, and her PhD at Georgia Southern University.

Marshall is on the executive board chair for the American Public Health Association and is a board member of the Georgia Breastfeeding Coalition. Additionally, Nandi is part of SOPHE’s 75th Anniversary Committee & Membership Committee, Georgia Infant Mortality Working Group, United States Breastfeeding Committee, Bulloch County Board of Health, Racial Equity and Leadership Savannah Taskforce, One Boro (Mayor’s Commission on Diversity and Inclusion), and Sallie Zetterower Parent Teacher Organization.

Outside of her time at work, Nandi likes to collect Funko Pops, watch Hallmark Christmas movies, read on her Kindle, engage with organizations of which she is a member of, and have fun with her family.
