I direct a Master of Public Health degree program—Community Oriented Public Health Practice–that employs problem-based learning and focuses on social justice as a public health imperative. This year I am pioneering a new public health skills class that engages students with community-based organizations while they learn program planning, evaluation, policy, advocacy, leadership and equity skills. I am heading a student conducted evaluation of Tent City at the UW this winter.

I’m interested in the intersection between armed conflict and health. In 2011, I led a team to count mortality associated with the Iraq war, which involved surveys of members of 2000 households across Iraq. I led a sister university project with the University of Basrah in Iraq, where we conducted a study of pediatric leukemia rates,1993-2007. In 2010, I published a study for the American Journal of Public Health exposing the health hazards of military recruiting in public high schools. I’ve also worked on homelessness and incarceration as health issues.

I conduct research health worker migration from low-income countries to wealthy countries. I recently completed a large CDC research project in Uganda studying the effects of PEPFAR spending on long-term health systems changes.

I am secretary of the board of the UW chapter of the American Association of University Professors, and serve on the nuclear weapons task force of Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility. I recently stepped down as funding member of the board of College Access Now, which assists low-income high school students to go to college.
