Event Description:
Jessica S. Ancker, M.P.H., Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the Center for Healthcare Informatics and Policy at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. She uses quantitative and qualitative methods to study how health technology affects decisions, behaviors and outcomes. Dr. Ancker earned her BA from Harvard University, and both her M.P.H. and Ph.D. from Columbia University.

In her research, Dr. Ancker studies the use of health information technology by patients and providers, its effects on medical decision making, and more broadly, its effects on public health. She is also interested in issues of health illiteracy and numeracy among patients, as well as statistical literacy among providers. She is the author or co-author of more than 30 articles/book chapters including, “Rethinking Health Numeracy: A Multidisciplinary Literature Review” and “Consumer Experience with and Perceptions of Health Information Technology” (both published in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association).

This talk is sponsored by the Lehman College Quantitative Reasoning (QR) Program.
