In a new study published in Health Affairs, researchers at IUPUI and the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration found that Medicaid enrollment occurred more frequently and more quickly for individuals impacted by the justice system after the Healthy Indiana Plan expanded eligibility for low-income adults and Indiana state agencies improved coordination and data sharing efforts. “Health care coverage is an essential social need, especially for justice-involved adults who are transitioning back to the community,” said Dr. Justin Blackburn, lead author of the new study and associate professor of health policy and management.
IU Research Impact featured Dr. Gerardo Maupomé in their latest COVID-19 update newsletter. Disparities in health care have come into clear focus during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Maupomé is currently co-leading Hispanic COVID-19 (or H-COVID), a new survey to provide insight on key areas of the COVID-19 experience for Hispanics. An expert on the public health challenges faced by Hispanic residents in Indiana, Dr. Maupomé serves as associate dean of research at the Fairbanks School of Public Health, is a professor with the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences, and is also an associate director with the Indiana CTSI Community Health Partnerships.
The FSPH alumni’s dedication to COVID-19 response efforts during 2020 has inspired us during our most challenging moments.

Thank you for all you do! Dean Paul Halverson will be helping the FSPH Alumni Board recognize our recipients for their outstanding careers and accomplishments. Congratulations, Kara Winterstein and Dr. Barbara Van Der Pol. You make our alumni community proud!
