Elizabeth Vestal joined the Schroeder Center for Health Policy in June 2011 adding to Schroeder Center staff and research affiliates. Vestal earned her Master's in Public Policy in May 2011 from the College of William & Mary and her J.D. from the University of Tennessee in May 2009.
The Schroeder Center produces valuable research and health policy tools for policy makers and academics and Vestal's addition to the staff increases the Center's ability to fulfill its mission and expand its reach.
Vestal spent the summer working closely with the Director of the Schroeder Center on current health policy research, redesigning the Schroeder Center website, and creating a new publication series called "Research Briefs" which summarize current Schroeder Center work on health policy issues.
The new research analyst looks forward to aiding the Schroeder Center in its mission to provide relevant health policy information and research to policymakers, educators, and students.
