Nadia uses the tools of implementation science to bridge the gap between research and care delivery. Her work consists of taking evidence-based models of care that have yielded better care, better health, and lower costs for targeted patient populations, and disseminating these models of care across multiple healthcare systems and care venues. To accomplish this, Nadia is partnering innovative researchers with healthcare systems and matchmaking evidence-based knowledge with healthcare delivery needs.
In 2017, Nadia was selected by the Indianapolis Business Journal as a Forty Under 40 honoree.
