STMSS33 – Dr. Matt Mishkind – Reducing Barriers to Care through Telehealth

About Today’s Guest: 

Matt Mishkind, PhD, has focused his career on two focal points: military health care and organizational development. He began his military health career with the Deployment Health Clinical Center (DHCC) at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC. He also served as one of the original staff members tasked with developing the National Center for Telehealth and Technology (T2) located on Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington State. While at T2, Dr. Mishkind helped lead the development of several technology-based initiatives to improve behavioral health access across the Department of Defense. His particular focus was on developing telehealth programs for remote and otherwise isolated populations. Both DHCC and T2 are part of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE).

Dr. Mishkind has 20 publications primarily focused on improving access to behavioral health care for military populations. He is also certified as a Senior Professional in Human Resources. Dr. Mishkind has also held positions focused on organizational development. Most recently, he served as team lead for training and human capital initiatives at the Bureau of Reclamation within the United States Department of Interior.
