My information and knowledge management career began as an Associate Fellow in the competitive National Library of Medicine program and formal internship at the Eskind Biomedical Library. After completing my fellowship, I transitioned to projects with increasing technological and informatics responsibilities such as initiatives related to the integration of evidence into the medical center’s electronic medical record (StarPanel) and online patient portal (MyHealthAtVanderbilt). In 2008, sponsored by an NLM Biomedical Informatics Research Fellowship, I enrolled in the rigorous public health master’s program within the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine to further strengthen my research and study methodology skill set. Working closely with Dr. Nunzia Bettinsoli Giuse, Professor of Biomedical Informatics and Vice President of Knowledge Management, I aid in our center’s initiatives in health literacy, genetic literacy, and learning styles for patient communication and education and served as co-PI on two knowledge management federally funded grants in these areas. Most recently, I have aided the team’s research on the social and behavioral determinants of health.
