Stephanie Kroll, MPH
Population Health Service Fellow, 2014-2016
Fellowship placements: Wisconsin Division of Public Health, Maternal and Child Health Program and Public Health Madison & Dane County
What projects are you currently working on?
I am working on many projects! My main
projects currently are: 1) a needs assessment around sexual and reproductive
health in Dane County; 2) co-facilitating a Collaborative Improvement and
Innovation Network (CoIIN) to reduce infant mortality in Wisconsin, focusing on
criminal justice reform and tax credits; and 3) a process evaluation of the
Perinatal Nurse Home Visiting program at Public Health Madison & Dane
Why did you decide to pursue a career in public
I wanted to work on prevention and upstream
indicators for health. It just makes so much sense to focus there!
After I took my first public health class, there was no going back.
What made you decide to join the fellowship
program as opposed to other career or educational options?
I thought it was a great opportunity to explore different avenues of
public health and to grow my list of skills and experiences.
