Shelly Shaw is the Associate Director of the Office of Community Health. The Vision of the Office is to be a trusted partner, resource, and advocate in our department and in our community to advance equitable health outcomes for all people.
Shelly comes to the Department with a broad background in public health from working as an infectious disease epidemiologist to implementing community-based interventions to keep kids healthy and active. Underlying her varied public health experience is a passion for prevention, community engagement, and equity. On any given day, you’ll find Shelly working with a wide variety of colleagues from listening to the wisdom of the Northeast Clinic’s Patient Family Advisory Council; to strategizing with our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee; to collaborating with colleagues in the School of Medicine and Public Health and UW Health – all with the purpose of developing a community health “infrastructure” through partnership, workforce development, education, research and quality improvement, and advocacy.
