Kristi Fuller is an assistant project director at the Georgia Health Policy Center. Her areas of expertise include aging and disability policy, long-term services and supports, and the health workforce.
Recent projects include a partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Network of Public Health Institutes to identify sustainable, evidence-informed approaches for affordable housing programs that coordinate health, wellness, and supportive services to help older adults remain healthy, age in their community, and improve health care utilization and costs. Fuller worked with the Georgia Department of Human Services’ Division of Aging Services to address COVID-19 vaccine equity, access, and confidence among older adults, people with disabilities, and caregivers in the state. The project included the development of an evidence-based, data-informed media campaign in partnership with the state’s No Wrong Door network.
Fuller leads a team of researchers evaluating the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Money Follows the Person demonstration program, in conjunction with the Georgia Department of Community Health, and convenes an evaluation advisory committee. In addition to long-term services and supports work, Fuller provides leadership in awards and grant management for partners, including the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Aligning Systems for Health: Health Care + Public Health + Social Services and the BUILD Health Challenge.
Fuller served on a national task force on the future of the work force, convened by the National Conference of State Legislatures and the Council of State Governments in partnership with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability and Employment’s State Exchange on Employment & Disability. She is currently a partner with Georgia State University’s Gerontology Institute.
