About Me

    I am the Program Director for the MS in Health Care Administration program at the University of New Haven. I have been recognized nationally as an expert in health policy, management and bioethics. I have published extensively on public participation in bioethics and public policy, public health ethics, research ethics, and the ethics of chronic pain and have published more than a dozen peer-reviewed publications, encyclopedia entries, book chapters and commentaries.

    In 2014, I was awarded the American College of Health Care Executives Regents Award for Distinguished Faculty and was recognized for my service and commitment to quality health care management education. I am a  summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa  graduate of Indiana University, where I designed the university’s bioethics major.  I am a former recipient of both a Fulbright and a Javits fellowship, and received my PhD in Bioethics & Health Policy from The Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health at the age of 25.
