Christin Iroegbu, PhD, MS, RN is a T32 postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Research. Her research focuses on the influence of nursing, organizational, and contextual factors on chronic disease management. Her pre-doctoral dissertation work used qualitative and quantitative methods to investigate the influence of patient-provider communication on patient chronic kidney disease awareness, risk for kidney failure, and self-management under the mentorship of Dr. Lea Ann Matura. As a postdoctoral fellow, Dr. Iroegbu plans to expound upon her foundational dissertation work to research and design ways to successfully integrate nurses into value-based care models that empower patients to effectively self-manage their chronic illness.

Dr. Iroegbu received her BSN from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, her MS in community-based nursing at Towson University, and her PhD at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing.
