Her commitments include the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center and Griffin’s Weight Management and Wellness Center, where she is developing a model for the clinical integration of a scalable lifestyle program. The EMPH course on Health Policy enabled her to identify the salient needs and opportunities within the changing healthcare system and the Management coursework empowered her to effectively lead the multidisciplinary committees involved within the hospital and professional societies.
