GET TO KNOW THE 2016 CPHA PUBLIC HEALTH AWARD RECIPIENTS

 

Debbie L. Humphries, PhD, MPH, Yale School of Public Health

C.E.A. Winslow Award

 

Dr. Humphries is a clinical instructor in Epidemiology (microbial diseases) at the Yale School of Public Health and teaches the renowned Practice Based Community Health Research course, which places student groups with agencies around Connecticut.  The benefits for community-based public health in CT are twofold: students develop skills in planning and designing practice-based community health research projects while precepting organizations employ the results and pilot data to develop strategic plans and apply for grants and consultation services they could not otherwise afford. Last year participating agencies included the New London Homeless Hospitality Center, Yale New Haven Health System, Common Ground High School’s Urban Farm and Environmental Education Center, and the City of Norwalk.  Dr. Humphries also serves on the leadership committees for AIDS Project New Haven and the CT Public Health Practice Based Research Network (CT PBRN).  She is a key figure in the CT PBRN, serving as a principal investigator on several studies that were developed in collaboration with the CT Association of Directors of Health and focus on local health department organizational structure, financing, and service delivery. Her CT PBRN research includes studying the effects of cross-jurisdictional resource sharing on the implementation, scope and quality of public health services in CT.  Dr. Humphries is also a co-author of the Community Research Assessment Tool (CREAT), a framework for characterizing the research capacity and value of research conducted by public health and community organizations that was conceived by the Yale Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS (CIRA). Dr. Humphries is a CIRA affiliated scientist and has collaborated with numerous community based HIV prevention and care providers in CT.
