Lindsay Zimmerman Awarded Prestigious Presidential Fellowship
Congratulations to Lindsay Zimmerman, CHIP doctoral research assistant, for being awarded the prestigious Northwestern University Presidential Fellowship. As one of six 2019 recipients, Lindsay will take a leadership role in the Society of Fellows activities and overarching community. “I’m really excited to interact with individuals from other departments to create opportunities for outreach and engagement,” says Lindsay.
Lindsay is a current PhD Candidate in the Health Sciences Integrated PhD Program and Health and Biomedical Informatics Track. Her dissertation research aims to better understand the relationship between social determinants of health and cardiovascular health, using sequential pattern mining and machine learning techniques. This work is vitally important in providing much needed information about how exposures to social determinants change over time and how they can be used to improve the prediction of patients at high-risk for poor cardiovascular health.
Lindsay works with CHIP on the eMERGE and H3 projects; this work is focused on better understanding the relationship between social determinants of health and various health outcomes.
