Dr. Holt’s clinical practice, academic training, leadership opportunities, and research experience focus on improving health equity by uncovering and addressing root causes that contribute to physical and behavioral health disparities. She achieves this through the application of implementation science methods that promote the uptake, integration, and sustainability of proven practices, interventions, and policies into clinical care. Dr. Holt values engagement with individuals, families, and communities as a critical component of the process.

Dr. Holt’s research interests include:

  • Advancing the care for diverse populations by co-developing innovative programs and demonstrating positive outcomes, and sustainability.
  • Using existing clinical data to examine primary care, health service delivery, and outcomes.
