Julie Carmalt is Associate Director of the Sloan Program in Health Administration and a Lecturer in the Department of Policy Analysis and Management at Cornell University. She joined the department after receiving her Ph.D. in Policy Analysis and Management from Cornell University in 2009.
Carmalt is a demographer by training with primary research and teaching interests in population health, population health management, public health policy, the social determinants of health, and relationships and health. New areas of research focus are population health management education.
Prior to arriving at Cornell, Carmalt worked as a case manager of adjudicated adolescent women and coordinated a study of juvenile female offenders. Prior to that she was a director of programs for persons with disabilities.
Understanding the unique needs of defined populations and developing programs and cross-sector partnerships to improve the health and wellbeing of specific groups has been a life-long endeavor that is particularly relevant to today's changing healthcare landscape.
In the fall of 2016, Carmalt, a RYT200 Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher, developed CHE Community Yoga to promote health, well-being, and community connection among College of Human Ecology members.
|Teaching and Advising Statement:|
My key areas of teaching include the evolution of population health management, health demography, and the social determinants of health. I utilize hands-on applied activities, flipped classroom methodology, mindfulness, and service learning to enhance student learning and engagement.
Advising, to me, means being present in the moment to help students develop the self-awareness required to identify their unique strengths, recognize what they are passionate about, and assessing and working with their limitations.
