Background: Michael is a graduate of Dartmouth's environmental studies program. He also earned a master's degree in public health from the University of New Hampshire and a law degree from the University of Oregon.
Experience: As an Oregon Sea Grant fellow, Michael developed recommendations for the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality on its natural resource damage assessment process. He also worked with a physician at the Harvard School of Public Health to develop a health-disparity survey for the New Hampshire Minority Health Coalition. Their goal was to inform inner-city physicians about any disparities and barriers to care in Manchester, NH; they utilized a CDC template and cognitive testing groups to develop the survey and the NHMHC translated it into five languages. Michael is interested in projects that examine the relationship between policy and population health.
