“Your selection reflects an acknowledgement of your outstanding professional achievements,” wrote Andrew Louden, Ph.D., scientific review officer at AHRQ.

Dr. Bolin’s 15 years of practice as an attorney in health related areas and her practice in nursing, including critical care, provide a unique research and policy perspective on issues related to health law as it intersects with compliance and protection in research, as well as the regulation of providers, hospitals and health organization.

Dr. Bolin will participate in AHRQ study section peer reviews three times per year for four years.
