Experienced Faculty With Diverse Backgrounds
More than 150 faculty members work within the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health. They have a wide range of expertise, from monitoring and assessing health risks and opportunities in populations, to helping build health-supporting social environments through policy, advocacy, and programs. They are educators, advisors, researchers, practitioners and community leaders. They come from backgrounds in quantitative, behavioral, environmental and social sciences, policy and government, exercise and health sciences and anthropology, among many other areas. They all work in collaboration with each other and with community partners, and are especially focused on the training and education of future leaders and practitioners in the public health fields.
Dr. Ifeoma Muoto holds an affiliate faculty appointment in the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health as an Affiliate Assistant Professor in the graduate level Health Management & Policy and Health Systems & Policy programs. In this role, her work includes teaching classes, mentoring students, and collaborating on research with primary faculty.
In addition to this commitment to the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health (SPH), Dr. Muoto is currently an Assistant Department Administrator at Kaiser Permanente supporting the OBGYN subspecialties – Perinatology, Urogynecology, and Gynecological Oncology. This role allows her to combine her passion for health systems with evidence-based policy and practice.
Her research to date has focused on maternal-child health, obstetric procedure use, and the effects of macro-level health policies on both population health and health inequities. She is currently focused on expanding her focus on maternal-child health and disparities to include global health systems, particularly those in the Sub-Saharan Africa region. She has years of teaching experience at the University of Connecticut and Oregon State University.
