Holly A. Derry, MPH


Holly Derry, MPH, has been working in the field of health promotion and disease management since 1995 and is an expert in the design and creation of all aspects of health communication and health behavior change projects. She has developed assessments and content for over 30 large health interventions covering a wide variety of health behaviors. Many are NIH-funded projects that focus on cancer prevention or decision making. The rest cover topics from organ donation to childhood obesity to oral health. The interventions have been delivered in a variety of media as well - on paper, via the web, via text messages, and through social networking sites.

Ms. Derry is trained in both the use of “plain language” to improve readability and literacy and motivational interviewing. She is also experienced in the implementation and analysis of focus groups, structured interviews, usability testing, and other qualitative methodology.
