Jacqueline Ellison, PhD, MPH

Assistant Professor of Health Policy and Management

Jacqueline (Jackie) Ellison, PhD, MPH, is an Assistant Professor within the Department of Health Policy and Management at the University of Pittsburgh School of Public Health, and Co-Investigator with the Center for Innovative Research on Gender Health Equity (CONVERGE) in the Department of General Internal Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. She is a reproductive health services researcher with interests at the intersections of health care policy, financing, and equity. She primarily uses quasiexperimental methods to evaluate the effects of health care policies and interventions on sexual and reproductive health service access, outcomes, and inequities. Another focus of her work is leveraging real-world data to identify the clinical value and iatrogenic harms of invasive gynecologic screenings. Prior to her research career, Jackie worked as a counselor for an independent abortion provider in North Florida- an experience that very much informs her research agenda and approach.
