Kevin Griffith is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Policy and an Investigator at the Partnered Evidence-based Policy Resource Center at the VA Boston Healthcare System. He has worked in government at local, state, and federal levels, developed a lifelong commitment to encourage policies informed by research and evidence, and uses that evidence to improve incentive design and effectiveness of public programs. His research also focuses on improving access to care especially for our nation’s veterans and vulnerable groups, risk prediction to target therapies and interventions towards those who are most likely to benefit, and the use of cost-effectiveness to improve value in health. His work has been published in a variety of peer-reviewed journals including Health Affairs, JAMA Network Open, or Diabetes Care, and has been covered more broadly by NPR, USA Today, Axios, or Bloomberg News.

Kevin is also a former Presidential Management Fellow and behavioral research scientist at the U.S. Army and Department of Defense, where he evaluated the costs and outcomes of interventions to improve mental health & resilience in active duty soldiers.  He holds a PhD in Health Services Research (health economics track) from the Boston University School of Public Health, and received both a Master of Public Administration (MPA) and BS in Economics from The Ohio State University.
