Theresa Hoeft, PhD

Personal Statement

I am a mixed-methods health services researcher and health economist with a PhD in population health and background in community engaged research. I enjoy working with stakeholders in clinic and community settings to develop scalable programs to improve mental health services in clinic and community settings. Such programs may involve a diverse workforce with varying levels of mental health training and experience, including lay health workers. My interest in technology focuses on finding efficiencies and the appropriate balance of technology and face-to-face encounters to support patient care and staff training/support in such programs.
