Research Specialist, UIC’s Center for Research on Women and Gender
As a Research Specialist at UIC’s Center for Research on Women and Gender, Pamela Roesch works to support increased research on topics important to women’s health, such as maternal morbidity prevention and rural healthcare provision.
Before this, she worked for five years as a consultant and manager at Accenture, an IT consulting firm, in their Health & Public Service Practice. As a project manager, she worked extensively with health payers, focusing on system improvements and insurer wellness tools.
Pam joined HealthConnect One’s Associate Board to become more involved in community-based efforts to support doulas and community health workers — who provide women the assistance they need for a successful pregnancy.
Pamela earned her Masters of Public Health in Maternal and Child Health and Epidemiology at the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health, with a focus on improving pregnancy and birth outcomes and reducing health disparities among women and children in Chicago. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and Economics from the University of Notre Dame, and her free time interests include running, traveling, volunteering and reading.
