Elise M.V. Wong is the Director of Communications & Research for the Physician-Patient Alliance for Health & Safety. She was the key researcher in PPAHS’s study with the American Hospital Association on nursing attitudes and beliefs to identify medical practices and technologies to reduce the occurrence of respiratory compromise and failure in patients receiving opioids. This research was presented by her at the International Conference on Opioids at Harvard University.
Elise has also conducted independent research on maternal and child health during the opioid epidemic, specifically on the care of opioid-using pregnant women and their newborns. During this time, she evaluated national and international clinical guidelines, examined those guidelines in practice through interviews with medical professionals and experts, and developed policy recommendations in managing the care of these patients.
Elise graduated from the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs with a certificate in Global Health & Health Policy. She has worked in Washington, D.C for both McAllister & Quinn, a government relations and business development firm, and Capitol Street, a consulting firm that provides U.S. health care policy research and analysis.
