Natalie Middaugh
Kentuckiana Health Collaborative

Job Title:
Project Coordinator

Recently, Kentuckiana Health Collaborative welcomed a new full-time project coordinator, Natalie Middaugh. Natalie joined the KHC part-time in early 2018 to support the KHC's Kentucky Opioid Response Effort (KORE) grant. After KHC was given funding for year two of the KORE grant, Natalie was hired full-time to support that work and other KHC projects. KHC members will get to know Natalie well as she becomes more familiar with her role in upcoming months.

Natalie graduated earlier this month with a MPH in Health Promotion and Behavioral Sciences from the University of Louisville. She is most interested in continuing to work with the KORE grants.

"It's inarguable that the opioid epidemic is currently one of the most prominent public health concerns facing Kentuckians," Natalie said. "I am eager and hopeful for how the KHC can be a contributing force in addressing it."

In her spare time, Natalie likes to stay physically active, whether through exercise or entertaining her two dogs, Harper and Nova. She is also passionate about food and nutrition, so she spends a lot of time researching and cooking.
