Detroit Health Department Lead Report 2016

I joined the Detroit Health Department in February 2016 as an epidemiologist. Among the first and most pressing topics I was engaged in was researching and modeling the impact of lead poisoning on Detroit children. When Health Department services were handed off to a nonprofit to implement, there was a significant reduction in lead screening and testing.

I led the design and communications of our analyses.
