Current Public-Health Related Activities:
I currently work as a Senior Research Analyst of Health Promotion at the Dept. of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services (DBHIDS). Behavioral health is an area of public health that is too often neglected. DBHIDS has recently transformed to take a population health based approach to behavioral healthcare in Philadelphia, but the department has historically been focused heavily on clinical treatment. To me, this transformation represents the disconnect between public health and behavioral health, and I strive to bridge this gap throughout my career.
