Jordan Carl, MPH, is a program associate at the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS). In this role, she supports a variety of projects related to child and family health, including CHCS’ technical assistance efforts to support Michigan’s children’s behavioral health transformation initiative.

Prior to joining CHCS, Jordan worked with West Philly Promise Neighborhood supporting its data and implementation teams to strengthen cradle-to-career pathways for children who live and go to school in West Philadelphia. She drafted community-facing briefs describing the neighborhood context based on publicly available data and worked with community resident researchers to determine the impacts of stress and public assistance programs on child fruit and vegetable consumption in West Philadelphia. Jordan also co-facilitated community workshops on using data for systems change.

Jordan holds a master’s of public health degree in community health and prevention from Drexel University. She earned her bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and molecular biology from Hendrix College.

In her free time, Jordan enjoys starting her day off with a run, exploring Philadelphia via bike, and baking to satisfy her sweet tooth.
