Brief : After obtaining her masters degree in public health with a concentration on health promotion and community health, Lea Zeinoun multiplied her experiences as a content developer in the field of substance use in the areas of school curriculums, community training workshops, field intervention manuals, and monitoring and evaluation tools.
