Jo Ann Shoup




I hold a deep interest in social and health policy and how such policies intersect with hospitals, organizations, social service, and systems. In addition, I hold an interest in the communication patterns; the facilitation of communication patterns on the organizational level and unit level, and the resulting impact upon patient care and delivery. I have a targeted interest in health behaviors and behavioral decision making in both infectious and chronic disease models. Specifically, I am interested in decision making of parents regarding vaccination of their child and the perception of risk of disease and vaccination.

I am a senior project manager at the Institute of Health Research, Kaiser Permanente Colorado, where I manages large, complex, multi-site projects. I’ve managed a RCT related to childhood obesity and currently am project manager for the Vaccine Safety Datalink project.  I have completed a three year CDC fellowship, engaging in tuberculosis control, disease surveillance, outbreak investigation, and epidemiology.

Currently, I am working toward my PhD in public affairs.  I hold Master degrees in Clinical Psychology, Health Social Work, and Health Policy.
