Anna Forte

Health Policy and Research Coordinator

Anna joined the Equal Hope team in 2017 as a data coordinator and development assistant. She now works as the Health Policy and Research Coordinator, where she oversees Equal Voice’s community advocacy project and supports the Quality Consortium with data collection and analysis.

Prior to joining Equal Hope Anna worked for the Deputy Commissioner at the Tennessee State Department of Health, and interned at the Oak Park Regional Housing Center, where she completed a project on the intersection of fair housing and public health. While most of her work experience is in the public health field, Anna is also interested in urban policy and planning more broadly, especially as it pertains to equitable development.
