Jacqueline Hodges, MD, MPH, a fourth-year American Board of Internal Medicine research pathway fellow in the Department of Medicine’s Division of Infectious Diseases & International Health, was selected for the HIV, Infectious Disease and Global Health Implementation Research Institute (HIGH IRI).
The program is sponsored by the Center for Dissemination and Implementation at the Institute for Public Health at Washington University in St. Louis. The goal of HIGH-IRI is to prepare and assist scholars to become productive Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) researchers focused on addressing the pressing challenges to human health posed by infectious diseases. This two- year program provides scholars personalized educational pathways to allow identification of competencies needed to develop their scientific, professional and personal goals. Program mentors are experts in D&I research representing institutions around the world.
Dr. Hodges will focus on the application of implementation science methods to more rigorously evaluate complex mobile health interventions and associated implementation strategies using pragmatic research study designs and a proactive approach. Her project for the award period will be centered on mobile health program adaptation for treatment of HIV and opioid use disorder in Washington, D.C.
