Dr. Wetmore joined the Post-Graduate Fellowship program in 2010 and worked with two research teams while at IHME: Integrated Surveillance Systems and Monitoring Costs. Her research involved a unique combination of local and international projects, most of which required primary data collection. She played a major role in the design and implementation of the Monitoring Disparities in Chronic Conditions (MDCC) Study, a multifaceted effort funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to understand the extent of, and reasons for, disparities in chronic disease risk factors, prevalence, and health service interventions. Dr. Wetmore also led the team of IHME researchers providing technical assistance to the Inter-American Development Bank for Salud Mésoamerica 2015, a results-based funding initiative supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Carlos Slim Health Institute, and the government of Spain. In addition, Dr. Wetmore gained valuable experience in health services research during the first year of her fellowship when she developed the Costs and Constraints survey, a computer-assisted survey covering econometric indicators of health care delivery and constraints in low- to middle-income countries.
After IHME, Dr. Wetmore went to work at Children's National Medical Center as a Faculty Biostatistician.
