Kim Gilhuly, MPH
Research and Population Health Manager
As the Research and Population Health Manager, Kim is part of the Research and Evaluation Team at PHIWM. Kim has 30 years of nonprofit experience, with over 11 years at Human Impact Partners as a national leader in the field of Health Impact Assessment (HIA), bringing health data, frame, and voice to public policy and practice change discussions. In her former position as the Health Instead of Punishment Program Director, Kim led the first HIA on a criminal legal system policy in the country, and went on to create a National Criminal Justice and Public Health Alliance – a movement to elevate human justice, repair harm, promote healing, engender true accountability – not punishment. Before creating the Health Instead of Punishment program, Kim helped to build the field of Health Impact Assessment by conducting more than 40 HIA and Health in All Policies research projects, training more than 1,000 people at nonprofits and agency partners across the country, and providing technical assistance. Kim taught graduate level Program Planning and Evaluation at the University of California – Berkeley, co-taught an HIA course at the University of Massachusetts – Amherst, and was an evaluation specialist with the Alameda County Public Health Department. Kim’s efforts are informed by a desire to raise up the participation and voices of people who are most directly impacted by oppressive systems in our country. Also, she is a devoted dog owner living in Montague, MA.
