JCE Reviewer Award 2022

        Each year, we honor two outstanding reviewers with the JCE Reviewer Award. Key criteria for nomination included: high quality of the submitted reviews (both critical and constructive, and making the essential points without forgetting relevant details), responding in time, and being available for reviews when invited. After careful review of all our peer reviewers, we are pleased to highlight the achievements of: Michelle A. DeVost and Chris Winchester. Well done, Michelle and Chris!

She completed her MPH in biostatistics at UCLA, where she focused on analytic methods for instrument and biomarker evaluation in the School of Nursing’s Statistical Design and Data Core. Her research interests center on causal inference methods for health equity research. In her current work, she is investigating heterogenous effects of early-life exposures on later-life health, evaluating sources and effects of bias in large administrative datasets, and studying how healthcare delivery systems differentially affect mortality among vulnerable populations of older adults.
