Amy Case was awarded a PhD in Public Health from the University of Texas School of Public Health in 2012. She spent 17 years at the Texas Department of State Health Services, primarily in the Texas Center for Birth Defects Research and Prevention.

Her academic and professional experience have focused on the intersection of policy and health behavior, and she has been involved in the design and evaluation of numerous interventions aimed at improving pregnancy outcomes, for example, a collaboration between the state, a local March of Dimes, and a large private clinical practice aimed at increasing interconception folic acid intake among WIC clients.

Amy sees her appointment at NCNM as consistent with the trajectory of her experiences in public health, which began when she became a certified instructor for the International Childbirth Education Association in 1988.
