Julie Carmalt is a demographer by training with primary research and teaching interests in population health, population health management, public health policy, the social determinants of health, and health equity. A new area of research focus is population health management education.
Professor Carmalt seeks to understand the unique needs of defined populations and developing programs and cross-sector partnerships to improve the health and wellbeing of vulnerable communities. This research is particularly relevant to today’s changing healthcare landscape.
Professor Carmalt is the Associate Director of the Sloan Program in Health Administration.
Prior to arriving at Cornell, Professor Carmalt worked as a case manager of adjudicated adolescent women and coordinated a study of juvenile female offenders. Prior to that she developed and directed programs for children and adults with diverse abilities.
Outside of the classroom, Professor Carmalt may be seen leading “yoga hikes” around Cornell’s Beebe Lake to promote health, well-being, and community connection among her students.
She received her undergraduate degree from Humboldt State University, graduate degrees from the University of Utah and Cornell and her Ph.D. from Cornell.
