As a public health researcher, participatory communication scientist, and proud Appalachian originally from the Cumberland Plateau, I support regional population health by using communication strategies to support evidence-informed decisions. Professionally involved in environmental health research for more than fifteen years, I have seen first-hand the information-related challenges that individuals and communities experience when identifying and addressing environmental health concerns. My work centers on on developing and implementing processes that encourage community-engaged, evidence-informed health actions, and I could not be more pleased to be using these approaches in my home region.
