Miller has served in administrative leadership roles with the IU Center for Global Health and the Indiana Institute for Global Health in Indiana and Kenya, and the AMPATH Consortium, a global partnership of universities, health systems and governments with sites currently in Kenya, Ghana and Mexico. In these roles, she has fostered new partnerships and relationships with civic and corporate leaders from around the world, and has worked to implement sustainable programs to improve health and human flourishing, with a focus on health care, the social determinants of health and building economic stability within families and communities.

Since 2020, Miller also served as Deputy Director of Contact Tracing on Indiana University’s COVID-19 Medical Response Team. In this role she designed and implemented a full-scale contact tracing program across all IU campuses, oversaw the development and utilization of informatics implementations, including systems for contact tracing and vaccination reporting, and managed the university’s contact tracing workforce of staff and nurses.

“We are delighted to welcome Megan to the university and to the Wisconsin Partnership Program,” said Amy Kind, MD, PhD, associate dean for social health sciences and programs at the School of Medicine and Public Health and executive director of the Wisconsin Partnership Program. “Megan brings extensive experience in implementing successful programs, working cross-culturally and fostering collaborative relationships locally and globally. Her experience, skills and commitment to improving health and advancing health equity will greatly enhance the work of the Wisconsin Partnership Program.”

In her previous role, Miller worked closely with a wide variety of stakeholders including physician leaders, faculty and university staff, nonprofit and university partners as well as local, state, national and international leaders and a network of supporters and donors.

Miller is looking forward to getting acquainted with the campus and Wisconsin communities. “I am excited about this opportunity and the many ways it intersects with my passion for health equity and the experiences I have gained in my previous leadership roles,” said Miller. “Over the next few months, I look forward to meeting WPP’s university and community partners and learning more about the important and impressive work they are doing to improve health and well-being. The entire team at WPP has been fantastic and I’m so appreciative of the warm welcome I have received!”
