Jolie Tu is a MPH candidate at the Emory University Rollins School of Public Health concentrating her studies in Health Policy & Management. She currently serves as the Principal Research Investigator at ARxC, and is helping develop the CACP Model report while also strengthening her role as a health advocate.
In 2013, she graduated from New York University with a B.A. in Psychology, where she realized her passion for public health. She served as a Program Coordinator with Health Leads, working side by side with patients at Bellevue Hospital in NYC to connect them to the basic resources critical to leading a healthy life.
She aspires to serve as a voice for the underrepresented by translating her community-level experiences into wide-scale, systematic change. Her key interests lie in improving chronic disease management and increasing healthcare quality and access for underserved populations.
In Fall 2015, she will begin a new role as an Administrative Fellow with Kaiser Permanente in Southern California. She hopes to gain the necessary knowledge and skills that will allow her to be an asset to hospitals that care for the medically underserved, helping them operate more effectively and efficiently within their resource constraints.
