Introduction
Introduction

Zahra “Niccu” Tafarrodi, Ph.D is an educator, researcher and author. She founded the International Health Education Alliance. Before that she served as the chairwoman of the Multicultural Committee of the American Cancer Society, Minnesota Division.

With the help of over 400 volunteers, Dr. Tafarrodi has created and published cancer and AIDS prevention publications into 61 languages over the past decade. She has received endorsement by the World Health Organization. Her work focuses on the education of immigrant women and refugees who can only communicate in their native languages.

“Immigrant woman and children are badly in need of education about their bodies and lifestyles,” Niccu says. “But first we need to understand women and children through interpretive and critical research before we can develop effective curriculum, teachers training and evaluation criteria.”

Niccu was born in Shiraz, Iran. As an adult, she established business courses for girls. She also worked with destitute families in the slums of South Tehran. After the Islamic revolution, she immigrated to the United States. Her focus on helping women switched from business education to health education. She received a B.S. in public health, and Ph.D. degree in family health education from the University of Minnesota. Her Master thesis was on early pregnancy among Jamaican women and her doctoral dissertation was on AIDS education for immigrant teenagers.

Niccu is an avid gardener, cook, and fitness enthusiast. She has earned recognition and certifications for: gardening, cake-making, and aerobic-fitness instruction. The walls of her home are adorned with the embroideries she has created, and the paintings and photography of her two grown children, Ali and Nicky.
