A veteran public health professional, Dr. Holsey brings over 18 years experience in public health program management. She has planned, implemented, and evaluated health promotion programs nationally for the American Public Health Association, Association of Asthma Educators, and American Lung Association; and regionally for Georgia Department of Community Health, Morehouse School of Medicine, Emory University, Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University, and Hughes Spalding Children's Hospital. She has also consulted as a program evaluator, grant reviewer, trainer, and research investigator for a myriad of organizations such as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Department of Education, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Emory University, American Public Health Association – Maternal and Child Health Section, and San Diego State University. She currently serves in a consultant capacity as the section administrator where she writes grants, prepares annual budgets, and evaluates the program planning and operational activities for the Internal Medicine and Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology Sections of the National Medical Association.
Two of her most recent professional accomplishments include: being asked to serve as a National Partnership for Action to end health disparities’ Southeastern Health Equity Council (SHEC) Stakeholder. In this role, she will serve as part of a cadre of stakeholders and experts in order to achieve SHEC’s mission, which is to “coordinate efforts in Region IV (eight states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee) to achieve health equity through policy changes, effective programs, and greater awareness.” In 2013, she was also nominated and selected as a Member of the Quality Measurement, Evaluation, Testing, Review, and Implementation Consortium (Q-METRIC) Asthma Representative Panel. Q-METRIC was selected by the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality as one of seven Centers of Excellence charged with the development of pediatric quality measures for the nation. These measures will be used by Medicaid, private insurers, and others to help improve the quality of care provided to children in the U.S. In Dr. Holsey’s role as a panel member, she will advise on the development of quality measures and establish the relative priority for candidate measures in pediatric asthma care.
Dr. Holsey has trained widely on the topic of pediatric asthma education and management and has several publications and professional presentations in the areas of asthma management, pediatric asthma, maternal and child health, chronic disease prevention, health disparities research, and health education.
