Alexis Stoner has a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Kenyon College, a Master’s degree in Public Health from The Ohio State University, and recently earned a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction – Instructional Design and Technology from Virginia Tech. During her Ph.D program, her dissertation explored incorporating mindfulness as an instructional strategy to enhance reflection within a situation learning environment. Currently, her research focuses on incorporating mindfulness within medical education, designing authentic learning experiences for undergraduate medical students, along with developing educational public health initiatives to improve health outcomes among underserved populations. She has also spent time exploring hygiene and water accessibility at our international outreach sites.

With a master’s degree in public health and a doctorate in instructional design and technology, I have a unique expertise of knowledge and understanding of how to effectively design, implement, and evaluate educational interventions that will improve the health outcomes of populations. I have either been the lead investigator or participated in a wide variety of research studies including qualitative, quantitative, mixed methods, and also evaluation studies including quality assessment and quality improvement. Additionally, as a public health practitioner, I have the experience and knowledge of researching and addressing pertinent community health issues through both research and outreach efforts. Currently, my research interests and areas focus on incorporating mindfulness within medical education, community mental health issues, designing authentic learning experiences for undergraduate medical students, along with developing educational public health initiatives to improve health outcomes among underserved populations.
