Jacqueline Mosley, ScD, MPH, MSN, ACNP-BC graduated with a Doctorate in Science (ScD) from Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine on May 15, 2015, in New Orleans, LA. Her dissertation, The Economic Burden of Comorbid Serious Mental Illness and Chronic Non- Communicable Disease in Working Age Adults in the United States, consisted of an economic analysis that applies Donabadien’s Quality Framework to identify specific deficiencies in the structure of healthcare delivery and processes of care that contribute to poor outcomes among minority geriatric patients with serious mental illness and/or dementia who experience acute care hospitalization. A mix methods approach allowed Dr. Mosley to include patients’ perspectives on the quality of medical care received and perceived needs related to cognitive and medical outcomes. To augment her expertise in caring for patients with complex psychiatric and physical health needs, Dr. Mosley is slated to complete the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Post Master Certificate Program at Eastern Kentucky University in preparation for board certification that will enhance her existing research and psychiatric skills of therapy, prescribing psychiatric medications and clinical management needed to treat underserved patients with mental illness and chronic medical comorbidities.
