Stacy Howard is the Associate Director of Policy for the Division of Laboratory Programs, Standards, and Services (DLPSS).  She has over 25 years of combined experience in the areas of laboratory practice, public health policy and federal rulemaking.  

Prior to joining DLPSS, Stacy served as a Senior Policy Analyst in the Division of Global Migration and Quarantine, National Center for Emerging Zoonotic and Infectious Diseases.  In this position, her work focused on policy and regulatory actions to prevent the introduction, transmission and spread of communicable diseases into the United States as well as updating regulations that govern the medical examinations immigrants and refugees are required to have prior to being admitted into the United States.

Stacy’s efforts at CDC have also been devoted to improving laboratory practice both nationally and internationally.  She began her career at CDC providing technical support to the Lipid Standardization Program and monitored the performance of participating laboratories.  During her years in the Division of Laboratory Systems, she worked closely with partners such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the Caribbean Epidemiology Centre (CAREC), and Zimbabwe’s National Quality Assurance Program (ZINQAP) to develop consensus guidelines and standards, training products and programs aimed at promoting and improving quality laboratory testing.

Stacy is a Medical Technology graduate from Middle Tennessee State University and Meharry Medical College and is certified by the American Society for Clinical Pathology.
