Position title: Project Assistant
Gillian is a project assistant on the Evidence & Policy Analysis team. This team’s work includes What Works for Health (WWFH), a searchable online database that provides community leaders, coalitions, and others with promising strategies to respond effectively to their health priorities. In WWFH, analysts systematically assess, summarize, and rate evidence for policies and programs that can affect health behaviors, social & economic factors, the physical environment, and clinical care. This research and translation effort was initially developed with funding from the Wisconsin Partnership Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and expanded to support the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps program in 2012.
Gillian is currently pursuing her master’s degree in public affairs at University of Wisconsin’s La Follette School of Public Affairs. She holds a B.M.E. in Music Education and Viola Performance from Illinois State University. Prior to joining County Health Rankings and Roadmaps, Gillian worked as an orchestra program director for the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District, where she focused on program accessibility and educational equity.
