Callie Walsh-Bailey, MPH

MapCA Pilot Team Member

Callie is originally from Northern California, though called the Pacific Northwest home for a decade before relocating to St. Louis. Callie’s interest in public health stems from volunteer and research experiences gained while living in Ecuador. She earned a B.A. in Spanish and Biology from Willamette University in 2013 and a Master of Public Health in International Health from Oregon State University in 2016.

After completing her MPH, Callie worked at the Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute for 3 years. During this time, Callie contributed to a wide array of implementation science studies and primary care quality improvement initiatives. She has experience employing qualitative methods and conducting systematic reviews. Her research interests include dissemination and implementation science, chronic disease prevention, and health equity. She is particularly interested in how patient social needs are addressed in clinical settings, and how community-clinical linkages can improve patient wellbeing.

When she is not conducting research, Callie enjoys attending sporting events, participating in outdoor activities, and cooking.
