Hannah Putnam-Johnson, MHA, MPH
Value Transformation and Health Equity Director
Hannah Putnam-Johnson holds a Bachelor of Science in Public Health from Purdue University and a dual Master of Health Administration, Master of Public Health degree (MHA/MPH) with a concentration in Health Policy and Management from Indiana University Fairbanks School of Public Health. In her role with IPHCA, Hannah engages health centers in training and technical assistance to collect SDoH data using the Protocol for Responding to and Addressing Patient Assets Risks and Experiences (PRAPARE) tool. This success is driven by sharing promising practices, peer learning events, and resource sharing at the inter-organizational level. Further, she works closely with the IPHCA team and external partners on strategic initiatives to continuously promote health equity.
Before Joining IPHCA, Hannah completed two fellowship programs with Eskenazi Health, an Indianapolis-based FQHC, and the Indiana Rural Health Association. With Eskenazi, Hannah assisted clinical staff throughout their quality improvement initiative, bringing perinatal depression screening and EHR-linked community-based referral to their clinical workflow. With IRHA, she focused on a policy and program proposal to support food justice for youth populations in rural Indiana. Hannah has always been passionate about health equity and health promotion, and in 2015 began her work in healthcare as an Emergency Medical Technician-Basic (EMT-B) for Indiana. Shifting more to the preventative aspect of healthcare, she obtained a Certified Health Education Specialist designation shortly after completing her undergraduate degree.
