Kim studied healthcare economics and policy in school, and she was working in policy research when PCORI came onto the scene. She felt a need for more comparative clinical effectiveness research to help people make more informed health care decisions—and was thrilled by the emergence of an organization that could create better decision-making evidence for patients, clinicians, and stakeholders.
Kim keeps track of ongoing research project milestones, ensuring work is completed quickly and effectively. She also attends merit review panels to hear applications reviewed, participates in stakeholder engagement work, and helps with topic development and funding announcement preparation. As a PCORI Program Officer, Kim gets to play an active role in the field of comparative effectiveness research.
