Natalie Smith

Natalie’s main research interest is to promote the implementation of evidence-informed policies to prevent cancer and chronic disease. To that end, she pursues research geared towards (1) using decision support methods, mainly simulation modeling, to assess the comparative health and economic effects of public health policies, and (2) improving how researchers disseminate findings from simulation modeling studies to policymakers. She earned her PhD in Health Policy and Management and her MS in Biostatistics from UNC Chapel Hill.
