overview

Dr. Jane Bolin, BSN, JD PhD currently serves as Associate Dean for Research in the College of Nursing, Professor and Director of the Southwest Rural Health Research Center in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Texas A&M Health Science Center, School of Public Health. Since her promotion to Full Professor in 2013, Dr. Bolin has served

as Principal Investigator or Co-Principal Investigator on nine (9) grants or contracts, (see CV), and has been solely or jointly responsible for over $10,559,325.00 million dollars in federal, state, and foundation funding to the TAMHSC and the School of Public Health. Dr. Bolin is also lead PI of the national Rural Healthy People 2020 publication which has been disseminated

nationally and has brought substantial recognition to the School of Public Health, such as invited presentations at ASPPH, NRHA, APHA, and multiple state conferences. Over the past 5 years Dr. Bolin has authored or co-authored

25 peer reviewed articles, edited a book, co-authored six (6) book chapters, given 11 invited scientific presentations and participated as author in 22 poster presentations and supported several graduate students. As with most researchers, national and state funding opportunities drive much of my research. My research at A&M is based on two - three core interests, 1) law, ethics, compliance & regulation; 2) chronic disease management, and; 3) rural and underserved populations. When I joined the faculty ranks at Texas A&M, I was invited to join the Southwest Rural Health Research Center on a HRSA-FORHP funded center project "Chronic Disease Management in Rural Areas". Since assuming responsibility for the Southwest Rural Health Research Center in 2008 I have worked diligently to maintain funding and also to serve as Chief Editor and publisher of Rural Healthy People 2020.
