Trudee Parenteau


Trudee joined JSI in its early years, from 1978 until 1982. While at JSI, Trudee worked on family planning in the US and on oral rehydration in Egypt. She also provided technical assistance to community health centers.

Trudee’s passion for public health took her from Hartford Hospital to Blue Cross/Blue Shield to the Boston Department of Health, where, as the assistant deputy commissioner, she was responsible for managing the ambulatory care center and emergency departments at Boston City Hospital. Trudee is survived by her husband, many friends, and colleagues.
