Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I have managed and coordinated multiple grants surrounding public health policy, systems and environmental changes in under-served populations. This includes a three year HUD-supported initiative on improving asthma in Norfolk public housing communities and an AAP CATCH Grant on Tobacco Cessation. Separately, I presented findings on community survey data collection, âPublic Health in Public Housing, Survey of Health Conditions and Behaviors,â at the National Healthy Homes Conference in Nashville, TN in May 2014.
