School of Education, Teaching and Health
- Jody Gan is an instructor in the School of Education, Teaching, and Health and the College of Arts and Science’s Department of Public Health. With 25 years of experience planning, implementing and evaluating health programs at the local, state, and national levels, she enjoys sharing her experiences and passion for health and wellness with both health promotion and public health students at American University. Her recent projects include translating the Dietary Guidelines for Americans into a curriculum for community health promoters, developing a campaign encouraging health care providers to universally test their patients for HIV, and designing a national training program on community outreach for “navigators” to boost enrollment in Federally qualified health plans sponsored by the Affordable Care Act. When not in the classroom, community, or home with her family, Jody can be found in her next favorite spot—the swimming pool.
