EducationDr. Whitmore is a lifelong Alaskan who returned to the state after completing an M.S.
in Industrial and Organizational Psychology and Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology
at Virginia Tech—to help Alaska "grow our own" workforce. Her current research interests
center around the role of trust in a patient-provider relationship, interventions
to support families of young children in rural Alaska, and effective teaching in the
Health Science classroom. Dr. Whitmore's teaching invites story into the health policy
classroom, partners evaluation students with community programs where they can apply
their learning to support operations, and introduces students to what public health
looks like in Alaska. Outside of work, you often can find Corrie out on the trails
hiking or skiing slowly, with two young boys and an old dog.
