Obrenka G. Thompson-Clayborn, MPH

Program Associate 

Obrenka G. Thompson-Clayborn prides herself on being a public health professional with a true passion for health equity strategies, grass roots capacity building and cultural humility. Obrenka is a true southern girl with her roots in Alabama. A Decatur, AL native Obrenka received her Bachelor’s degree in African American Studies from the University of Alabama, Birmingham and her Master’s degree in Public Health from the University of Memphis. Obrenka’ s passion for public health started in undergrad where she majored in Chemistry Pre-Med. However, after countless hours of studying and in all honestly failing, she changed her major to African American studies and decided that her impact would be larger in public health. While taking a Health Disparities course Obrenka was introduced to the inequities in maternal child health and realized the disparities that she was being taught could be her fate in the future. Once both of her parents were diagnosed with preventable cancers her senior year, Obrenka knew Public Health prevention work would be her purpose.

Obrenka says she has been called to Public Health and HIV prevention for one simple reason, the people. As she likes to call herself she is a “talkative introvert”. She loves socializing and helping her fellow community but also enjoys a good book by Black authors or binge watching cooking competitions on Netflix.
