Professor Miyong Kim, PhD, RN, FAAN is the new chair of the School’s Department of Health Systems and Out-comes. She replaces the inaugural chair, the late Vicki Mock, PhD, RN, FAAN, and the department’s interim chair, Maryann Fralic, DrPH, RN, FAAN. Kim noted, “These two wonderful Chairs leave very big shoes to fill. Their leadership legacy is just extraordinary.”
As a Johns Hopkins professor and researcher, Kim’s work has focused on the key areas of hypertension and diabetes control, cancer prevention, and mental health. She employs her expertise in community based participatory research, health literacy and program evaluation. Her research is widely published both here in the U.S. and in Korea, and she has presented more than 100 method-ological papers at international and national scientific conferences.
Kim has participated in the Robert Wood Johnson Executive Nurse Fellows Program, an advanced leadership program for nurses in senior executive roles, and serves as a regular NIH study section member and evaluation consultant on an array of national and international research and policy analysis projects.
Dean Martha N. Hill, PhD, RN, FAAN describes Kim as “an exceptional translational researcher who brings to the position a collaborative spirit and leadership style that exemplifies the scholarly excellence of the School of Nursing.”
