Melody Kingsley, MPH
Melody Kingsley is an Epidemiologist and part of the evaluation team for the Massachusetts Tobacco Cessation and Prevention program (MTCP) at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. She has over five years of experience conducting surveillance and evaluation related activities for MTCP, including analyzing trends in adult and youth tobacco data, mapping geographical inequities in tobacco retail density, and evaluating the impact of tobacco control policies on the retail environment and behavioral outcomes. Her current work focuses on conducting program and policy evaluation using a racial justice lens and assessing whether local and statewide policies have an equitable impact on populations disproportionately affected by tobacco use. She is also interested in using non-traditional approaches to data collection and evaluation, including online panel surveys and community-based participatory evaluation methods, to increase BIPOC representation and lift up community voices. She received her Master of Public Health from the Yale School of Public Health with a concentration in Chronic Disease Epidemiology.
