MVC Welcomes Program Assistant Shannon Beattie to Support MVC Special Projects

I am delighted and grateful to have the opportunity to return to the Michigan Value Collaborative (MVC) as a Program Assistant.  Through my experiences, I have become passionate about the intersection of clinical care and quality improvement, and I am excited to be part of a team innovating in this space.

I am a recent graduate of the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Science in biology, health, and society as well as gender and health. As such, I have just begun to venture into the multifaceted healthcare industry. With two years of experience as a DONA-trained birth doula, I have a particular interest in advocating for patient-centered care within the space of women’s reproductive health. In my free time, I volunteer as an on-call birth doula at the University of Michigan’s Von Voightlander Women’s Hospital, providing support to those in need during labor and delivery.

This past summer, I had the opportunity to work with MVC in the role of Marketing and Health Communications Intern. Working alongside the rest of the MVC team, I explored a new side of healthcare, learned about the impactful work of Michigan CQIs, and developed my communication and brand-building skills.

As Program Assistant, I look forward to continuing to collaborate with this wonderful team to improve the quality and value of healthcare in Michigan. If you have any questions or would like to connect, please reach out to shannobe@med.umich.edu.
