Elissa Dawkins, Ph.D.

Dissertation Committee Adjunct,
Department of Healthcare

Hi! I'm Dr. Elissa Dawkins and I live in sunny/rainy/stormy/breezy South Florida. I received my PhD in Educational Research and Evaluation with a minor in Systems Analysis from Nova Southeastern University in 2019; MSc in Clinical Research Administration from Walden University in 2012; and a BSc in Health Science from Purdue Global in 2010.

I have taught various courses in research methods (quantitative); leadership; and statistics (using Excel & SPSS). I also serve as a doctoral capstone mentor, dissertation chair, and member. 

I currently work as a Director of Research, and have published various articles on preventive medicine, value-based care, and policy analysis. I currently have 4 papers in the pipeline under review, and I hope to have those published soon!

Thanks for reading!
