Stephanie Frisbee is an Assistant Professor in the School of Public Health. Dr. Frisbee joined West Virginia University in 2004, coming from Children's Hospital and Health System in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. There, she ran the Outcomes Department and the National Outcomes Center, two novel and groundbreaking initiatives by Children's Hospital of Wisconsin to systematically apply research and outcomes-based methodologies to improve internal operations leading to improved quality of care and, through national collaborative, pediatric health care nationwide. As part of the Outcomes Department and National Outcomes Center, Dr. Frisbee participated in and lead internal and national multi-site studies on topics ranging from pediatric congenital heart disease, lung transplantation, bronchiolitis, extubation in pediatric intensive care units, and health care for children with special needs among others.

Dr. Frisbee has diverse educational and professional experiences. It is through this broad and varied background that has allowed Dr. Frisbee to develop a unique perspective as well as develop a wide array of skills, including outcomes evaluation techniques, data quality and management, behavioral economics, multivariable statistical techniques and, more recently, epidemiologic approaches and policy analysis.

Dr. Frisbee's research interests and approaches reflect her widespread educational and professional experiences. Her primary health outcome of interest is pediatric cardiovascular disease. She uses various approaches, including epidemiology, policy analysis, health outcome approaches, and cost effectiveness analysis to study how various biologic, socioeconomic, and other risk factors influence pediatric cardiovascular health at the individual and population level.
