Julia Strasser, MPH is a Research Associate in the Office of the Associate Director of ARP. Since joining ARP in October 2012, she has worked on the following projects and initiatives: the Person-Centered Outcomes Research Resource (PCORR) Funding Opportunity Announcement (released June 2013), the Tobacco Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey (TUS-CPS), the Automated Self-Administered 24-Hour Dietary Recall (ASA24), the Healthy Eating Index (HEI-2010), the Dietary Patterns Methods Project (DPMP), the Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium (BCSC), and Population-Based Research Optimizing Screening through Personalized Regimens (PROSPR). Starting in the Fall of 2013, she will also be involved in planning the International Cancer Screening Network (ICSN) 2015 meeting.

Prior to joining ARP, Ms. Strasser worked as a Project Manager at MMG, Inc. on several government contracts, including two within NCI's Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS). Before working at MMG, she served as a Policy Analyst at the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association, advocating on behalf of family planning providers who serve low-income patients. Her interest in women's and reproductive health stems from her previous work at Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest, where she worked one-on-one with patients to discuss pregnancy options, birth control methods, and HIV testing. She also served as a CRTA in the NCI Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) before starting graduate school. Ms. Strasser received an MPH from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, with a concentration in women's and reproductive health, and a BA from Yale University, where she majored in history.
