People's Health Solutions provides consulting services to public administrators, non-profits, managed care entities, universities, and service providers in four core areas: health communication, research and evaluation, health policy analysis, and organizational learning. In today's fast-paced world where there is a tremendous need for healing, democratic solutions are more essential than ever. We take an integral approach to public health initiatives that is rooted in the histories and visions of organizations and communities.
We design and craft health communication campaigns and creative content to educate, persuade, and inspire action. A long-time journalist, Melissa has traveled internationally writing on topics ranging from complex surgeries to epidemics to health reform. She is conversant in English and Spanish.
research & evaluation
Let our experience in academia, government, and health care be of service as you plan, implement, and evaluate health programs. We use participatory approaches to support trust and empowerment and to generate authentic insight into patient, client, and community member experiences.
health policy analysis
We provide consultation to public administrators and organizations seeking to develop policies and programs informed by objective analysis. We have been particularly successful assisting clients with community needs assessments, Medicaid claims analyses, and policy briefs.
We help organizations transform and grow through facilitated activities ranging from health integration inventories to learning communities to Critical Dialogues. Melissa’s approach to dialogue and facilitation is always compassionate, LGBTQ-affirming, and rooted in cultural humility.
