Farewell to Data Analyst Megan Hartrick
Our dedicated Data Analyst, Megan Hartrick, has accepted a position at 2-1-1 San Diego compiling and analyzing statistics from the organization's various reporting systems. She will continue producing data visualizations, reports and presentation materials to support internal decision-making and inform community planning.
Megan came to RTFH as a contractor with SDSU's Institute for Public Health working under former Board Member, Dr. Sue Lindsay. Megan provided incomparable innovative work on creating our interactive data dashboards, System Framework, and Executive Indicators. RTFH was proud to have the opportunity to present how we created our public facing dashboards with Megan representing us at local and national conferences alike.
Megan also helped launch a functional By-Name List for providers serving homeless Veterans to identify and prioritize clients most in need of housing based on their need level and service history in the HMIS. A By-Name List is a national standard the community and RTFH worked towards but hadn't fully realized without Megan's critical thinking and vision.
We look forward to continuing our relationship with 2-1-1 and other collaborative entities that RTFH alumni may work for in the future. Relationships like these are critical in strengthening partnerships that ultimately benefit the community we serve.
