Dr. Gayl M. Anglin

Department Chair in Health Administration - College of Health and Human Services

As a public health researcher and project manager, Dr. Anglin has been drawn to the needs of those without a voice of their own; she values the opportunity to use her knowledge to help others. This same belief in helping others is represented in her teaching. She believes in helping students find their voice by enabling them to broaden their knowledge, gain insight into different aspects and dimensions of the field of public health and health administration, realize their potential and hopefully in return, they will then use their new found knowledge and insights to also help others.

Dr. Anglin has over 17 years experience working in the fields of public health, health policy, and program management. Her experience extends from academic research, government contract/project management and evaluation, and teaching. She spent several years in both research and project management within the field of substance abuse, including initiatives focused on maternal health, quality improvement, evidenced-based treatment, community/research/policy collaboration, and cultural competence in treatment. She currently serves as assistant editor for a peer-reviewed journal and also as a volunteer with the Medical Reserve Corps, providing project management, evaluation, and cultural competence expertise. Her real world experience translates into knowledge that is utilized in the classroom for her students.

I appreciate being part of a wonderful team of faculty in the Health Administration Program at Trident University. Our BSHA and MSHA programs are cutting edge and the nature of our online learning system allows us to keep our courses continually updated with the latest information and research for our students to optimize their learning experience.
