Anne Hewitt, Ph.D.
M.H.A. Program Director and Professor
Department of Interprofessional Health Sciences and Health Administration
Since joining Seton Hall University in 2000, I've taught many diverse courses in both the MHA and MPA program including strategic planning, health management, health policy, community health, emergency preparedness, and global health and program evaluation. I also serve as faculty for the MHA internship and practicum courses. My current research interests focus on community health planning, health policy at the state level, the social causes of health disparities and integrating new e-learning technologies into graduate education. In 2005, I founded the Seton Center for Community Health to serve as a resource to the local community.
