I have 25+ years of epidemiology experience in state, federal, university, and nonprofit settings. I came to USM in 2004 and my work in Maine has focused on maternal and child health and injury prevention. My primary responsibilities include designing and maintaining public health surveillance systems that include information on morbidity, mortality, health services, and risk factors; analyzing birth, death, hospital discharge, emergency department, survey, and program datasets; evaluating the quality of existing data sources, surveillance systems, and programs; developing and implementing dataset linkage strategies, and conducting needs assessments.
