Maureen K. Byrnes Faculty Member

As a Teaching Instructor, my focus during this review period has been on teaching and service. I taught the MPH Intro to Health Policy Analysis and Federal Policymaking and Advocacy courses. I taught the undergrad Health Services Management and Economics course, and I serve as the Course Lead for Module 4 in the MHA@GW program. As always, but especially given the COVID-19 pandemic, I revised most of the case examples assigned in the Intro to Health Policy Analysis and Federal Policymaking courses to reflect current events with special attention to a focus on health equity and health disparities. I continue to serve on the Department’s Curriculum Committee and am pleased to help out again this year reviewing admissions applications. I convened and facilitated a small subgroup of the Department’s Admission Committee to look at lessons learned from our recent experience and make recommendations for how the scoring categories for scholarship can be refined and improved. I am on the Search Committee for the faculty position Doug Anderson currently fills, and I serve as the Diversity Advocate for the Committee. I am a member of the Dissertation Committee for DrPH candidate Kim DiGioia. I am currently reviewing draft dissertation materials. Kim is scheduled to defend her dissertation in March. I met with a small group of faculty along with Jane Thorpe, Len Friedman and Andy Wiss to review the CAHME required process for providing feedback to students on competencies in the MHA@GW program. I expect to meet with this group again to revise the current process. I attended Department webinars and Health Policy Hours and always encourage my students to attend, as well.
