Jody Myers joined UCD’s Department of Dermatology as the Clinical Trials Manager in 2014.  Although her path has deviated from her original plan of improving the world through political action, as prepared by her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, she is very happy to have continued her education in her realm of choice by earning a Master of Health Services Administration from the University of Michigan School of Public Health.

Since pursuing a career in health care, she has worked for several public and private entities in reproductive and sexual health.  She started by assisting the Denver STD/HIV Prevention Training Center to educate clinicians to diagnose and manage STDs and most recently worked in HIV research with the Children’s Hospital Immunodeficiency Program (CHIP).  These experiences were interspersed with others in waste and energy consulting, political campaigning, and health research preparation. 

Jody is continually amazed by the complexity of the human body and its ability to express emotional and mental experiences, realities, and perceptions.  Thus her primary research interests lie in the physical manifestations of thoughts and emotions.  For instance, why and how does stress frequently lead to worsening psoriatic symptoms? 

Outside Jody’s efforts to support dermatology research, she enjoys playing with and rehabilitating companion animals, reading, and spending time with friends and family.
