Professional Summary

Dr. Prosser's research focuses on comparative and cost-effectiveness of children's health interventions. Her current research focuses on policy-relevant topics concerning the cost-effectiveness of childhood interventions, including influenza vaccination and newborn screening. Her research also seeks to identify new methodologies for valuing health outcomes for comparative and cost-effectiveness analysis in child health policy.

Dr. Prosser's research on the economic impact of influenza vaccination has been used in setting national vaccine policy for children and for prioritizing subgroups in vaccination shortage years. She is a member of the evidence review group for the Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children. Dr. Prosser was the founding decision scientist for the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review. Dr. Prosser also holds adjunct faculty appointments at Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health.
