Patti "Pia" Roman, MA, Eastern Michigan University, 2010



Since graduating from EMU, Pia has been working at the Veterans Administration's Center for Clinical Management Research in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She is part of a team that conducts health services research through studies that support Veterans who suffer from various chronic diseases. The objective of these studies is to identify effective interventions that may ultimately be offered to a broader population. This work is intellectually rewarding because of the opportunity to contribute to studies, from conception, to design, implementation, analysis, and publication. In addition, interacting with patients enables her to see first-hand the positive effects of the interventions, and to be inspired daily by the patients who volunteer their time to participate in these important studies.
