Amy Finnegan


Amy Finnegan received her PhD in 2016 from the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University. Her work addresses questions about how people respond to health information with a particular focus on who is providing the information (for example, do pregnant women change their behavior more when a family member shares information or a government program?). She is currently a postdoctoral associate at DGHI working with Dr. Eric Green on projects related to information and health behavior in Kenya, Liberia and Zimbabwe.

To start a conversation with me, ask: about my long-haired dachshund Bro.

Something interesting most people don't know about me: I was born and raised on a farm in South Dakota.
