Kevin Wu, M.P.H.

Senior Project Manager

Kevin’s background in health care services evaluation and community-based public health interventions fuels his interest in social justice for underprivileged populations, particularly in regards to improving health outcomes. At RDA, Kevin brings experience in multi-year longitudinal evaluations, health care integration evaluations, health education methods, and community-based participatory research methods. With extensive education and practice in applied social sciences, he has familiarity conducting quantitative and qualitative research and analysis methods.

Prior to RDA, Kevin evaluated the implementation of patient-centered medical homes in the New Orleans community health center systems after Hurricane Katrina affected its entire systems of care. He also evaluated the integration of primary care and behavioral health services in a variety of settings, including clinics serving populations at-risk for or with HIV. Additionally, he explored the lay health adviser model for peer health education in rural African American churches using a community-based participatory research framework.
