Hi, I'm Dr. Jessica Hanson. Students call me Dr. Hanson. I'm an assistant professor in the public health program at UMD. I have my Ph.D. in Community and Behavioral Health from the University of Iowa. Prior to coming to UMD, I managed a research lab and research team in South Dakota.
When it comes to research, my primary area of interest involves developing, implementing, and evaluating public health interventions within Native American communities. Check out this list of my publications.
My favorite class to teach is HLTH 3303 Planning Health Interventions. I love this class, because it is in the area of public health about which I am most passionate about...engaging communities in the health intervention process.
If you have any questions, my door is always open!
