Sunnie Hodge is a public health analyst at RTI. She works on the Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) Standards Review project, funded by the Administration for Community Living (ACL). As an analyst for this project, Ms. Hodge seeks to determine the ways in which ACL supports grantee organizations in meeting CLAS Standards. In addition, she is a part of the Measurement, Monitoring, and Evaluation of State Demonstrations to Integrate Care for Dual Eligible Individuals project that’s funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The project aims to monitor and evaluate state-specific demonstrations, beneficiary experience, and care outcomes in 14 states. She is also an analyst for the Implementation Support for the Independence at Home Demonstration project. The goal of this project is to help CMS design and implement the Independence at Home (IAH) demonstration, which financially incentivizes providers to reduce Medicare expenditures and provide high-quality home-based primary care.
Before joining RTI in 2020, Ms. Hodge interned at TB HIV Care, a registered nonprofit in Cape Town, South Africa, where she designed and conducted focus groups, analyzed the resulting data, and implemented a peer education program. She was also a student researcher at Simmons University.
