A 20-year veteran of the State University of New York (SUNY) system, Edeline Mitton, MEd, is the director of the Office of Continuing Medical Education at Downstate Medical Center. She received a Bachelor of Arts in psychology with a minor in marketing from the City University of New York College of Staten Island, a master’s in education with a concentration in instructional design from the University of Phoenix, and a Medical Informatics Certification at SUNY Downstate. In addition, she is involved in the cultivation of mindfulness meditation and yoga therapy and research. Mitton has been involved with PCORI since 2014, serving as a merit reviewer and an Ambassador. She believes in the PCORI mission of putting patients at the center of research. As an educator for physicians, she believes that the patient should be front and center when looking at practice gaps. What is it that this physician is lacking and needs to improve upon to impact that patient’s health? How do we not involve the patient in their care? They know their bodies, the spaces in between, and what feels right. Mitton is also a caretaker and advocate for Alzheimer’s patients.
