PhD candidate Sana Ahmad awarded dissertation grant

Bloustein School PhD candidate Sana Ahmad was recently awarded a dissertation grant by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) of the U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services. This highly competitive and prestigious award will enable her to work full time on her dissertation research over the next year.

The grant award is titled, “Quality of Care for Medicaid Patients with Comorbid Mental Health and Chronic Physical Conditions.” As part of her research, she will generate policy-relevant findings about the organization of care for highly vulnerable, medically complex patients, using NJ Medicaid data and engaging closely with state Medicaid officials and stakeholders.

She currently works as a graduate intern with the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy.
