Background and Bio
Eve Giordano is the Program Associate for Children & Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) at AMCHP. Eve recently received her Master of Public Health from The George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health. Her graduate thesis project designed a group prenatal care intervention aimed at addressing disparities maternal mortality and low-birthweight outcomes for women of color living in Wards 7 & 8 in Washington DC through providing accessible, culturally relevant, and non-stigmatizing early and consistent antenatal care services. Prior to her MPH, she received her Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience from Dickinson College (Carlisle, PA) and worked in a number of direct service provider positions upon graduation. Her passion for improving public health outcomes for people with disabilities stems from her experiences being a Home Health Aid as well as a Registered Behavioral Technician at the Center for Autism and Related Disorders.
My Current Work
Eve supports various projects and initiatives, including the re-design of the web-based State Public Health Autism Resource Center (SPHARC), and focuses her efforts on providing targeted learning opportunities to Title V programs and others working to improve systems of care for CYSHCN. Eve helps the SPHARC team produce several web-based resources, including an updated version of our CYSHCN Program Profile, A Guide to Developing Health Equity-focused Interagency Agreements for Title V Programs. Additionally, she manages AMCHP’s Child & Adolescent Health (CAH) Twitter account and CYSHCN-related web content, including the SPHARC website.
Eve is always eager to try new things and apply her skills to cross-team efforts to advance AMCHP’s mission and is a key supporter of the organization as we build out our new 5-year strategic plan.
