Biography & Affiliation


Dr. Hall is a biomedical informatician and researcher focused on improving health outcomes in high-risk perinatal and pediatric populations through novel integration and analysis of disparate maternal-child health data sets. His primary focus areas include preventing infant mortality and improving outcomes for children who experience prenatal opioid exposures. His interests have expanded beyond the hospital setting where high-risk children receive treatment, to the community setting with an increased focus on prediction and prevention of poor outcomes among at-risk populations.
