Ms. Corinna – MPH, Clinical Research, Patient Care, and Biomedical Engineering – Academic and Foundation Grant Writer
A long string of homeruns in fund development and a trusted reputation for dynamic collaboration with a broad and diverse network of clients and funders is the secret to Ms. Corinna’s success as a foundation grant writer. Since 2008, the projects that Corinna has nurtured and led—proposals to federal, state, and municipal government agencies, foundations and corporate social responsibility units — have culminated in over $75M in public and private funding for initiatives that address individual, community, and population health and environmental justice and equity. Public and private funders include NIH, NSF, CDC, SAMHSA, OPA, HRSA, the NYS Department of Health, and NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), the New York State Health Foundation, and the Susan Thompson Buffet Foundation among others.
Corinna earned her BA in Public Policy from Cleveland State University and received her Master’s in Public Health from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School in 2009. Areas of content and technical expertise include: adult serious mental illness (SMI), substance abuse, co-occurring disorder, and evidence-based and promising practices; maternal-child and women’s/reproductive health (Title X, Title V, Healthy Start, Nurse Home Visiting and Centering Pregnancy models); child welfare systems and ‘aftercare’ (successful transition to adulthood and independent living); early childhood serious emotional disorders , youth and adolescent mental health, trauma-informed care and Systems of Care (SOCs); transitional and emergency housing and Housing First models; criminal and juvenile justice re-entry and recidivism; and the Affordable Care Act (ACA)/Medicaid redesign (Electronic Health Records [EHRs] Meaningful Use [MU], pay-for-performance, and Patient Centered Medical Homes [PCMHs]).
Having recently returned to her hometown of Cleveland after over a decade in NYC, Corinna has been spending her time with brilliant (and quirky) biomedical engineers and researchers, learning about their disruptive work and cultivating external interest and funding for their cutting-edge innovations. Micro and nano-fluidic-based portable devices with the capacity to rapidly and easily screen newborns in developing and under-resourced regions for Malaria and Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) and other life-threatening disorders and conditions are just one example of the type of innovation Corinna is most excited about.
