Theresa Hoeft, PhD
Dr. Hoeft trained as a Health Economist and Health Services Researcher within a program in Population Health Sciences. Her graduate work focused on quantitative and mixed-methods research. Since graduate school she has developed skills in community-based participatory research (CBPR) through work at a health care organization serving the Alaska Native population in Anchorage, Alaska and work with community-based co-researchers in rural areas of southwest Alaska. Her skill-set thus focuses on mixed-methods research conducted in partnership with community stakeholders as she takes a patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) approach to health services research. Her work with the AIMS Center currently involves assisting with an economic evaluation as a part of the Social Innovation Fund project and also helping with the Care Partners project focused on late-life depression treatment with community partners in California.
