Education & Affiliations
Tatiane Santos is an assistant professor at Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. She holds a senior adjunct faculty appointment at the Colorado School of Public Health, and Adjunct Senior Fellow appointment at the University of Pennsylvania Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics and Penn Center for Public Health Initiatives. She is a core member of the COVID-19 Modeling Group in CO and leads the development of the CO Population Data Dashboard. Dr. Santos was selected as a fellow of the first national cohort of AcademyHealth's Public Voices Fellowship in partnership with the OpEd Project.
Dr. Santos’ research focuses broadly on three anchor institutions that contribute to population health and equity: a) state and local public health departments; b) hospitals; and c) primary care providers. Her research leverages the implementation of several policy reforms to understand how these three key actors contribute to advancing population health and health equity, alone and through their intersection.
She currently leads a study on behavioral health and substance use integration in primary care, and a study of nonprofit hospital and health department collaboration in health planning to address population health priorities.
