Mia T. Vogel, MPH, MSW is a T32 Predoctoral Fellow in Obesity and Cardiovascular Disease (T32 HL130357) and a Doctoral Student in the Public Health Sciences Program at the Brown School at Washington University. She comes to The Brown School from the University of Washington where she earned Masters Degrees in Social Work and Public Health. At UW, she worked at Health Promotion Research Center, a CDC-funded Prevention Research Center housed in the Department of Health Services, and on the Team Science Module of the Institute of Translational Health Sciences (ITHS) Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program Hub. In her time at the Brown School, Ms. Vogel has continued her CTSA work with the Washington University Institute for Clinical & Translational Sciences (ICTS) Team Science Module and Tracking and Evaluation Core with the aim of speeding up the translation from discovery to dissemination and ultimately find innovative solutions to the toughest problems facing public health, medicine, and our society. Mia has also lended expertise on the Center for Public Health Systems Science National Cancer Institute grant, Advancing Science & Practice in the Retail Environment (ASPiRE) that leverages agent-based modeling to test the potential impact of targeted retail tobacco policies and collaborated with the Prevention Research Center and Social Systems Design Lab. She is currently extending research she conducted during her MPH thesis on multi-sectoral partnerships for hypertension control. She also collaborates with partners at University of Southern California and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles on an implementation project using system dynamics for improving pediatric severe traumatic brain injury outcomes in the intensive care unit.
