Newes-Adeyi, Ph.D.

Principal Associate, Health & Environment

Gabriella Newes-Adeyi is an expert in public health research and evaluation planning and implementation. A skilled manager, she has directed a number of large, complex multisite research and evaluation projects.

She leads studies for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to examine seasonal and pandemic influenza-related illness and complications in multiple settings, including in the U.S. and other countries. Newes-Adeyi also is on the leadership team for the evaluation of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Oncology Care Model, an innovative payment method to encourage enhanced care coordination, appropriate oncology care, and patient access at reduced costs.

Newes-Adeyi previously led a project for the Agency for Health Research Quality to support primary care Practice Based Research Networks. She managed work for the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) involving the provision of web-based clinical risk management, patient safety, and continuing education services to HRSA-supported health centers and free clinics.

She has directed a surveillance contract providing data collection and coding support for the CDC’s multisite National Birth Defects Prevention Study and its follow-on Birth Defects Study to Evaluate Pregnancy exposures. She also provided technical support to three CDC-funded studies examining novel H1N1 influenza A virus infection and vaccine effectiveness in pregnant women, healthcare workers and children. She also led a pilot test of the Influenza Vaccine Surveillance System for the CDC, an active surveillance system to monitor vaccine reports of adverse events following receipt of influenza vaccination.
