Dr. Alice Hausman is currently Senior Director of the new Office of Practice and Engagement for the College of Public Health. Previous to this position, she served as Chair or Interim Chair Chair of the Department of Public for the past 10 years Health. In her new role, Dr. Hausman will provide leadership across the College in creating and maintaining relationships with practice settings and oversee efforts in community engagement. This work connects directly with Dr. Hausman’s scholarly work. She has a broad background in public health practice and evaluation research, with specific expertise in community-based participatory research (CBPR) and mixed methods designs. She has been PI or co-Investigator on several grants funded by university, private foundations, and federal institutes conducting community participatory research in the context of youth violence prevention program development and evaluation. She has over 20 years of experience working in partnership with Philadelphia communities conducting and disseminating research. Her specific interests related to translational research center on bringing community voice into health research by identifying and measuring indicators of health promotion program success that reflect the community’s perspective. She is also interested in how public health programs are brought to scale particularly in community settings. At the national level, Dr. Hausman has been asked to bring her expertise to serve on advisory panels for the US Office of Housing and Urban Development, the Centers for Disease Control, and currently conducts proposal reviews for NIH and PCORI. Dr. Hausman’s collaborations also include a wide range of public health agencies, including the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and disAbilities, and the Pennsylvania Department of Health to improve the infrastructure for service delivery. She currently serves on the Philadelphia Mayor’s Youth Violence Prevention Collaborative. She has extensive experience in association governance, having served as an elected member to the Executive Committee of the Philadelphia College of Physicians' Section on Public Health and Preventive Medicine and to the Pennsylvania Public Health Association Executive Board. Most recently she was invited to participate in the small Transitional Governance Committee for ASPPH to guide its transition from representing only schools of public health to include accredited programs as well. Her experience with participatory approaches, research-practice collaborations, and public health association governance are important strengths that will help the College grow its community and practice partnerships.
