Megan Jehn's research interests include clinical epidemiology, health services research and emergency preparedness. An ongoing project is the development of a series of novel public health tabletop exercises for state, local and federal public health agencies to evaluate community mitigation strategies for pandemic influenza and improve coordination of preparedness plans. Previous work has focused on chronic disease epidemiology (clinical trials of diabetes and childhood obesity prevention), as well as infectious disease epidemiology (pandemic influenza prevention, transmission and risk perception).
