Cohort Five Fellow


Dr. Jared Parrish is a Senior Epidemiologist at the Alaska Department of Health and Human Services. Dr. Parrish received his PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His dissertation built a longitudinal birth cohort through data linkages and multiple imputations, to quantify systematic error and elucidate weighted cumulative maltreatment risk profiles throughout the life course. Parallel to his education, Dr. Parrish has primarily focused his research efforts on applying epidemiologic approaches to comprehensively quantify the incidence of child maltreatment through data linkages, cases ascertainment, and operationalizing definitions. He also participates on various committees concerned with applying a public health approach to maltreatment surveillance.
