Published on

From the the first Annual National Conference on Tobacco and Behavioral Health, which occurred May 19-20, 2014 in Bethesda, MD and was hosted by the Central East Addiction Technology Transfer Center, a program of The Danya Institute. You can see videos from the conference on our website www.ceattc.org (go to “Tobacco and Behavioral Health Resources” under “Special Topics”).

Shelina Foderingham, MSW, MPH, is the Director of Practice Improvement at the National Council for Behavioral Health. Ms. Foderingham directs the National Behavioral Health Network for Tobacco and Cancer Control and Prevention, a newly CDC funded initiative that aims to support the enhancement of the quality and performance of specific public health programs, data and information systems, practice and services, partnerships, and resources that focus on tobacco-related and cancer health disparities in individuals with mental health and substance use disorders. She serves as a quality improvement facilitator for National Council learning communities, facilitating practice change through web-based and in-person TA. Over the past 7 years, much of her work has focused on integrating primary-behavioral health and public health in the Greater New Orleans area. She has provided leadership to large project teams to ensure coordination locally in the Greater New Orleans area, across the State of Louisiana, and the Gulf Coast Region on behavioral health integration activities. Most recently, Ms. Foderingham managed the full scope of the New Orleans Charitable Health Fund program which provided funding and technical assistance to local community-based organizations to improve the physical and mental health of residents in the Greater New Orleans area through integration of behavioral health, primary health care and linkages to social services using evidence-based and innovative approaches. She has led and served as faculty for quality improvement projects focused on primary-behavioral health integration, health information technology, quality improvement, population health management and linkage to the public health system. She holds a dual Masters in Social Work and Public Health from Tulane University and a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology from Xavier University of Louisiana.
