AHRQ names new Senior Advisor for Women's Health

AHRQ Director Carolyn M. Clancy, M.D., has announced the appointment of Rosaly Correa-de-Araujo, M.D., M.Sc., Ph.D., as the Agency's Senior Advisor for Women's Health. Dr. Correa is a cardiovascular pathologist trained at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.

Before assuming her new position as Senior Advisor on Women's Health, Dr. Correa worked with AHRQ's Evidence-based Practice Centers Program, overseeing the development of various evidence reports on topics of clinical relevance to women's health. She also provided support to AHRQ's women's health program through her involvement in numerous interagency workgroups and committees.

Prior to joining AHRQ, Dr. Correa acquired vast experience on the safe use of medications in the elderly through numerous years of work involving the development and maintenance of a database on evidence-based geriatric pharmacotherapy for clinical decision support. As Senior Advisor for Women's Health, Dr. Correa will work closely with Agency staff, AHRQ's Advisory Committee on Women's Health, and a host of other relevant groups in and outside the Department of Health and Human Services to maintain AHRQ's leadership role in improving health care for women.
