Position title: Translational Research Advisor
Prior to joining the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps, Kim worked at the Public Health Institute of Western Massachusetts and Human Impact Partners. At Human Impact Partners, Kim helped to build the field of health impact assessment (HIA) across the United States and went on to spearhead the Health Instead of Punishment program, which sought to change the criminal legal systems that have so harmed people with lower incomes and people of color in our country.
Kim holds a Master of Public Health from the University of California at Berkeley. Her interests include partnering and listening with communities seeking to create systemic change. Her expertise is in using the power of health research, data, and voice to support changes that people affected by inequity inherently know need to happen.
