Salt Lake County Health Department
Lynn Beltran, BS, MPH, currently serves as the Epidemiology Supervisor over the STD and HIV program at the Salt Lake County Health Department. Lynn has worked in public health for 20 years, beginning her career in North Central San Diego as the Site Coordinator for an pregnancy prevention program for Latino gang members. Lynn has always had a special interest in sexual health as well as epidemiology, and her current position provides the perfect marriage for both of these interests. Lynn has worked in her current position for 12 years during which time the program has merged their HIV and STD programs while increasing in size to meet the demands of ever growing disease rates. Despite it's seemingly conservative culture, Salt Lake County has increasing rates of STD's and HIV and Lynn enjoys the challenge of finding innovative ways to address the needs of the community.
