Health Policy and Management Doctoral Student Cited for Research

Jing Hao, a doctoral candidate in health policy and management, was recently awarded a scholarship for outstanding work in Public Health Systems Research (PHSR) from AcademyHealth and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Hao was awarded the scholarship for her research project, “Analysis of Combination Drugs Approved in the US from 1980 to 2012.” She is working on the project with faculty mentor Rosa Rodriguez-Monguio, associate professor of health policy and management.

PHSR is a field of study that examines the organization, financing, and delivery of public health services, and the impact of these services on the health of the population.

The award includes free registration to attend AcademyHealth’s annual research meeting and the PHSR Interest Group annual meeting, as well as $1,500 for travel expenses to attend the meetings in Baltimore in June. Hao and the other eight awardees also will receive career mentoring and coaching before and during the meetings.
