Dr. Jewel Goodman Shepherd is an Assistant Professor of Health Services Administration

My academic and professional accomplishments and experiences have been important to
developing my teaching pedagogy because as an educator I must be willing to understand
not only the student perspective, but also the perspective that I bring into the classroom
and be willing to make accommodations. I demonstrate ambitious behaviors and model
self-efficacy for my students so that there are clear expectations of success for
them throughout their tenure with me in the course and beyond. I ensure there are
no discrepancies between my teaching behaviors and my personal values. I am committed
to placing students at the center of their learning by teaching in the manner that
is best suited for their learning style and that promotes success. With an accomplished
experience at the Community College level, the Undergraduate level specific to a four-year
University experience and familiarity with graduate students pursuing an MPH or a
Health Services Research PhD, I share the College and University's responsibility
of managing recruitment and retention by executing my role as a mentor with the same
enthusiasm I exert for teaching to ensure student academic success. I see advising
and mentoring as an extension of teaching and service to students to promote a cohesive
learning community. My teaching interests are public health, community health, epidemiology,
health services research, advanced strategic planning, advance healthcare management,
health services administration and additional health-focused curriculum.
Research interests include: chronic care management, health education and promotion,
behavior health surveillance, mobile health technologies, and inter-professional collaboration
in the health sciences.
