A Statistician's Life, Celebrating Women in Statistics »

[1 Mar 2022 | Comments Off on Holly Shulman | ]

What appealed to Holly Shulman most about statistics was how it applied a mathematical approach to real-world problems. Consequently, her greatest passion has been developing the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS), a state-population-based surveillance system of maternal behaviors and attitudes before, during, and shortly after pregnancy. PRAMS data has led to improved health through programmatic and legislative efforts. Shulman also serves as co-lead of the Healthy People 2030 Maternal, Infant, and Child Health (MICH) workgroup. Valuing professional service, Shulman served as president of the Caucus for Women in Statistics in 1999 and was chair of the ASA Committee on Women in Statistics in 2000. She is motivated by and follows in the footsteps of many inspiring women before her and hopes to inspire those who come after her.
