Lisa Conboy MA, MS, ScD


I have conducted health research and taught research methodology to students of sociology, biomedicine, and complementary medicine for over 30 years. With degrees in public health and sociology, I specialize in the study of traditional and complex health systems. I am published in the areas of Women’s Health, Complementary and Alternative Medicine, qualitative research methodology, and complexity science. I am an Instructor at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, and the Director of Research and Special Projects at Seattle Institute of East Asian Medicine. I am also the chair of the Research Committee of the American Society of Acupuncturists, and an active member of the Education Special Interest Group in Education at the Society for Acupuncture Research.
As a University of Washington Osher Center Member Affiliate, I hope to co-create successful collaborative research work with Osher faculty, clinicians, and fellows. I have been an affiliate of the Harvard Osher Center for many years, and hope for the same at the University of Washington, to offer my expertise in research education, mentoring in the use of quantitative and qualitative research skills, study design and execution, and manuscript development.
