My public health training was focused on health management and policy, global health, and program evaluation, and most of my professional experience has been in program evaluation and health service research. My program evaluation experience has enabled me to help stakeholders working on statewide, regional, and local public health programs understand how their efforts are impacting population health, and consider how that impact can be maximized. In my current position at Eastern Maine Medical Center, I am also working closely with clinicians and system administrators to design, fund, and implement health service and implementation-oriented studies.

Some of the things I am currently working on include an ongoing health service study looking at strategies to improve antibiotic stewardship in outpatient settings, and a study focused on the effectiveness of a primary care food security screening and referral model for connecting people experiencing food insecurity with local food resources. I am also working on evaluations of a home health tele-monitoring program, and a program designed to expand access to self-management education for patients with chronic disease.
