Speaker Information

Nicole Ackermann
Nicole Ackermann is a statistical data analyst at Washington University School of Medicine, Division of Public Health Sciences. She obtained her Master’s degree in Public Health, with a focus in Epidemiology, from Saint Louis University. In addition to working with a variety of public health related data analyses, Nicole also co-coordinates the Community Research Fellows Training Program, modeled after a Masters of Public Health curriculum. CRTS’s goal is to provide community members with tools and resources to examine and address health disparities that exist among communities of color and medically underserved populations in the St. Louis region, through building capacity for community-based participatory research (CBPR) and fostering health partnerships between academic researchers and community partners. Nicole loves her two dogs, Bella and Petra, who happen to also enjoy walks in our local St. Louis parks.
