Anna Winston, MD, MPH is an internal medicine resident physician at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Her interest is in improving the quality and equity of clinical care at the intersection of quality improvement and implementation science, particularly for marginalized populations.
The majority of her prior research focuses on improving care cascades and thereby reducing loss to follow-up, such as with hepatitis C in multiple Boston hospitals and HIV in Namibia. Her preferred research methods include pairing population-level quantitative data with front-line qualitative data to implement improvements, which she learned from hospital administrative jobs, the classroom, and as a new physician. Additionally, her prior research evaluated rehabilitative programming for men serving life sentences in Massachusetts State prisons as well as starting group visit clinics for low-income communities in Vellore, India.
She completed an MS in Biomedical Sciences and an MPH in Global Health at Tufts University School of Medicine, which she later attended for medical school. After residency in internal medicine, she aspires to practice clinically with time also devoted to quality improvement and health equity work.
