Judith Shinogle

A message from Dr. Donald F. Norris to the Public Policy Community:

I am deeply saddened to report that Dr. Judith Shinogle was killed in an automobile accident on May 20, 2012. As Senior Research Scientist at MIPAR, and Adjunct Associate Professor of Public Policy, Judy touched many lives.

Dr. Shinogle had a distinguished and productive career as a health policy analyst and health outcomes researcher. She has a Ph.D. in Public Health Economics from the Johns Hopkins University, and a Master’s in Health Policy from the Harvard School of Public Health. She was an assistant professor in the Department of Health Services Administration at the University of Maryland College Park. She has also held positions as an economist with RTI International, a NCHS/AcademyHealth Policy Fellow, and an assistant professor at the University of South Carolina.


Dr. Shinogle was admired as a highly productive scholar and rigorous policy analyst. Most recently she focused on students of behavioral health problems, obesity and gambling. She was a popular teacher and valued mentor to Ph.D. students in public policy during her years at UMBC.


Her death is a truly a loss to UMBC and the wider community. We extend our deepest sympathies to her family and friends. The UMBC community held a memorial service for Judy on June 26.
