Program evaluation is one of the key services NWCPHP offers to public health agencies, and we are pleased to announce the newest member of the evaluation team, Megan Rogers.

Rogers comes to NWCPHP with experience carrying out research protocols, designing surveys, interpreting results, and preparing reports for a wide variety of nonprofit and government agencies. Her portfolio includes projects ranging from health and childcare needs assessments to anti-bullying program evaluations and studies on the spending habits of food stamp recipients.

“Because of my history working with such a variety of agencies and disciplines, I always had to focus on the fundamentals of program evaluation and needs assessment, which gives me a strong base to start from as I begin applying them to public health,” says Rogers.

Her 10 years of experience is supported by a strong academic foundation in Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistical Analysis—the concentration track she chose for her MS in Psychology, which she earned from Western Washington University.

Rogers now looks forward to challenging her skills with more public health-related projects. In fact, she’s already getting started with a project evaluating NWCPHP’s flagship program, the Summer Institute. As you would expect, the scope of her work won’t stop there.

“The breadth of work that NWCPHP undertakes really excites me, as well as the reputation of the University of Washington and faculty in support of the Center. I also like the fact that NWCPHP has a regional focus, which offers me a great opportunity to contribute and expand the skills I bring,” says Rogers. “Plus, I love working in agencies with a lot of heart. People in public health have a lot of heart, and you don’t find that just anywhere.”
