Core Investigator, VA HSR&D Center for Health Information and Communication
Dr. Sarah Shue is a core investigator of the CHIC. Her research focuses on health promotion and disease prevention, holistic health care, and designing and implementing community-based interventions to improve veterans’ quality of life and reduce their risk for functional impairment. She is experienced with qualitative methodologies and is interested in rapid approaches for data analysis. Dr. Shue first joined the CHIC as a post-doctoral fellow in 2018, then as an investigator in 2020. During her fellowship she collaborated with VA clinicians and stakeholders, community stakeholders, and post-9/11 Veterans to develop the REconnecting to Civilian Life using Activities that Improve Mindfulness (RECLAIM) program. In 2020 she was awarded a Small Award Initiative for Impact (SWIFT) to pilot test the virtual delivery of RECLAIM. Dr. Shue is working to submit a Career Development Award that will integrate her background in sport and exercise psychology and VA priorities to support the health care needs of reintegrating post-9/11 Veterans.
