Hey y’all! I’m Briana Ford, MPH, GSNE TIG Co-Chair, and a public health researcher and data analyst working out of my hometown, Columbia, SC. I joined AEA to learn about evaluation methods and enrich my quantitative methods with wisdom from the field. I feel responsible for making data accessible and relevant for program advocacy. My education and experience are in public health, policy, healthcare research, and cognitive science, which is the topic of this blog.
