Siobhan Gruschow, MPH, MEd

CPHI Adjunct Fellow

Title: Clinical Research Coordinator II at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Center for Injury Research and Prevention

Public Health Interests:

Adolescent Health, Epidemiology, Intimate Partner Violence, Sexual and Reproductive Health, Program Evaluation, Health Policy

Current Public-Health Related Activities:

I am an MPH-trained epidemiologist with three years of experience in public-health research. My work has focused primarily on adolescent and maternal health, including the management of large administrative databases. I am interested in translating epidemiologic research into strategies and interventions that improve population health.

As a Clinical Research Coordinator I manage all research projects in the New Jersey Traffic Safety and Outcomes Program at CIRP. This program focuses on advancing young -driver research and translating this research into interventions and policies. Since motor vehicle car crashes are the leading cause of death and acquired disability for US adolescents, this work directly impacts the health of adolescents.
