Andrea Nederveld has been involved with patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) since she was an intern on an HIV prevention program in Senegal after college and before attending medical school. During medical school and residency, she was interested in research and did some community engagement, although it was not really until she was in private practice that she was able to participate more fully. The experiences she had in practice spurred her to pursue a research fellowship in 2015 and shift back to an academic career that focused on using PCOR and community engagement to address health issues in communities in western Colorado. Since then, she has been involved in the above-named projects, as well as several others that focus on community engagement. She has started a practice-based research network in western Colorado that is focused on community health improvement through engagement.
Andrea enjoys interacting with others who are involved in PCOR and is eager to make additional connections and use her experiences to encourage others to engage in PCOR.
