Meet New Staff Member Julie Hewitt
1) Tell me a bit about your work before you joined the PRCHN. Where did you work and what did you do?
Prior to joining the PRCHN, I worked at the Case School of Nursing as a Project Manager for the IMPACT (Ideas Moving Parents and Adolescents to Change Together) study. I was responsible for oversight of the intervention arm of this study. Prior to the IMPACT study, I worked at the Diabetes Partnership of Cleveland and managed a summer camp for children with Type 1 diabetes. I've also worked at Case on several other research projects and also directed an AmeriCorps National Service program.

2) Tell me about your education. Where and what did you study? Is your work here radically different than what you studied in college? In other words, has your career path made any unusual changes?
I attended Kent State University for my bachelor’s and master’s degrees. I started as a nursing major but finished with a master’s degree in community health education. I later earned a certificate in adolescent health from Case Western Reserve. I feel that my work as the Building Capacity for Obesity Prevention Project Manager is very much aligned with my educational background and professional experiences. My career path hasn’t made any unusual changes; all of the positions that I've held have had a focus on health.

3) What aspects of your new position are most intriguing to you? What are you looking forward to?
I'm excited for the combination of research and work with community partners. I’m also looking forward to being a part of the PRCHN with their innovative research and programs, community partnerships and committed staff.

4) What are some of your interests outside of work?
Outside of work, my interests are reading, off the beaten path travel, cooking, and running.

5) Where did you grow up and where have you settled in Cleveland?
I’m originally from Twinsburg. I’ve lived in Cleveland Heights for the past 18 years.

6) Is there anything else that you'd like to share with the PRCHN and its stakeholders?
Thank you for this opportunity!
