Judy Chen traveled from Swarthmore College to the Zhejiang University of Technology in China through PiA to teach English. Despite the University's assurances that voluntary quarantine in her apartment and spray bottles filled with vinegar would effectively prevent SARS, Judy left China for a brief sojourn in the US before heading to Kunming to work with PiA partner Population Services International (PSI). While there, she coordinated peer education and outreach programs to provide HIV/AIDS prevention information to injecting drug users. Vientiane, Laos was her next stop after completing her master's in public health, where she worked on national behavioral surveillance surveys with sex workers and men who have sex with men. Before heading back to the US, Judy had the privilege of working with an NGO in Kachin State, Myanmar on malaria control. Currently Judy is based in Cambridge, Massachusetts as Monitoring and Evaluation Analyst on an initiative to prevent mother to child transmission of HIV/AIDS. She is responsible for a portfolio of countries in Asia and Africa and travels for work.
