Anne Duggan, ScD is a professor of Population, Family, and Reproductive Health, Health Policy and Management, and Mental Health at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health. She is the director of the Home Visiting Research Network as well as co-principal investigator of The Mother and Infant Home Visiting Program Evaluation (MIHOPE). She also co-directs evaluations for three states – Hawaii, Maryland, and New Jersey – and serves as advisor to several other states in their competitive MIECHV grants. Her research is to strengthen the system of early childhood health, education, and family support services, and her approach incorporates the principles and methods of implementation science and theories of behavior to explain unintended variation in the scale up of evidence-based models in terms of service effectiveness, coordination, and fidelity.
