Anita Colbert graduated from PA School of Nursing in 1971. She spent many years in hospital nursing and four years as a school nurse in Okinawa, Japan. In 1991, she found her real calling as a Public Health nurse and began an immunization program during a measles outbreak in Fort Worth, Texas. This program is still successful today and much of it is credited to Tarrant County Public Health and the working relationship with Immunization Collaboration of Tarrant County. Since 1991, she has been directly involved in the beginning, nurturing and sustaining of ICTC and has led volunteers and staff through many years of education and events. Anita is married and lives in Granbury, Texas. She has three adult children and five grandchildren.
